Tenant messing about on payments

Recommended Posts

Hi

can anyone advise on a source of template letters please?  My partner and her brother need to send a letter to the tenant of their old family home, who has been behind on payments for a few months, and has been erratic in addressing the problem. They're currently two months behind (2*£1150 = £2300). They've had problems (they split up, he had an injury and couldn't work; now they're giving their relationship another try). They've offered to pay £500 a week starting from "when he's getting paid again", until they're back on track. We're going to write to them telling them what they need to pay when and what will happen if they don't follow the payment plan. 

Where can we get a template letter that addresses at least some of what we need to say? 

Thanks.

That’s quite specific for a template letter. I’d write on basis of confirming what was agreed / said. If you think they may continue to be problematic you can issue a s8 notice when two months in arrears

It could be worth a conversation with a specialist firm as this may lead to an eviction. I'm guessing you wouldn't want the arrears to increase much further than that already?

Good luck with this
