    Do you know where they live?

    If so, you serve a money claim on them, win the case, and then apply for a CCJ if the judgement is not paid within 28 days.
    Stalkers, please go over this comment with a fine tooth comb.

    I'm doing just that to a tenant who is in arrears (again!) but not enough to use a S.8 Ground 8 Notice.

    You can use a tracing service for as little as £27.50 (ex-VAT) if you do not know their whereabouts. They are www.ccsformations.co.uk but I know nothing about them so you will have to make your own enquiries.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

    How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive? Homer Simpson

    Default corect way once court papers issued

    at last find a monkey found tenant I paid court fee and issued court papers for rent arrears.
    Tenant has left messages on my phone demanding bank details (he tried this before and no payment SENT)
    Do I just wait and insist he replies to the court and then agree payment as he is only offering rent arrears not court costs and search fee.
    If I reply and he does not pay has this stopped me carrying out the court action,

    The search company is called www.findermonkey.co.uk. Not 'Find a monkey'.

    *If* you have started a claim in the county court for an alleged debt of unpaid rent, then the defendant/tenant may choose to respond by either paying or admitting the debt, or part-admitting it, or denying it. Either way, he must respond via the court and tell the court what his response is.

    If the defendant pays only part of the claim, then it's up to you as to whether to settle for part-payment or not. It may make sense to settle; e.g. if your claim is for £2K, and the court fee is £100 and search fee £50 (and I don't know whether T is actually liable for the search fee), then, if the defendant pays you £2K then it would be really stupid to pursue the claim just to try to get the extra £100 in court fees and argue about the £50 search fee.

    If you arrive at any agreement for the defendant/tenant to pay you £X to discontinue, then do not discontinue the claim until you have actually received cleared funds as per the agreed settlement.
