Dear RLA,

See below for copy of an email I have just sent to my HB tenant. I think I should issue a Section 8 very soon unless he comes up with the arrears. The uncertainty I face over the arrears is that I do not know when / if HB will resume paying me (directly).

Rent is £675 pcm so he is over 2 months in arrears.

I have previously (in March) issued section 8 to him and at that point he repaid his arrears.

what is your advice? Thanks.


I see that you are now heavily in arrears (see attached letter from HB, emails and spreadsheet).

I am talking to the HB people to find out when they will resume payment to me, but as it stands, you owe me somewhere between £1,750 and £2,185. Note that HB have overpaid you £825 according to their letter (copy attached).

Can you please get in contact with me urgently? Do you have any proposals how to resolve this?

Happy to meet to discuss this.

I look forward to hearing from you very soon.


PS I will deliver a copy of this mail also by hand
