I have a tenant on an AST who is 2+ months in arrears. I have raised a Money Claim online through the government website which she has ignored. I have not gone any further with the money claim (baillifs etc), and will probably ‘set aside’ the claim as I don’t stand much chance of recouping the money.
You recently advised that I cannot claim twice for the same amount so, if I issue a section 8, do I just claim the difference between the money claim amount and the most recent arrears (this will not equate to 2 months rent), or can I ‘set aside’ my original money claim and claim the whole amount of arrears when issuing the section 8?
I plan to issue a section 21 at the same time.
