My tenant hasn't paid her rent for 1 year and rental arrears of £8,900 so far. The court hearing date has been confirmed at late Nov 2022. I did try to persuade the guarantor to settle out of court, but his daughter hired solicitor to fight the case based on that he is a pensioner, lives alone in a council flat, he has no money or any assets, hence the court will not let him to pay anything.

So I am wondering if that's the case, then all people who claims they have no money or asset can get away from obligations. Is that so?

Could anyone advice is there anything that I can do to get my money back from the guarantor?

P. S. the tenants currently still lives in my property and not paying a penny. My solicitor has issued both Section 8 and Section 21. The Court waiting time has been 1 year since the first Section 8 issued. back in Mar 2021. Section 21 has been issue twice due to the 6 months expiry date.

It has been a long, stressful year and I still have 2 months for my hearing date.
