I evicted a tenant about 7 weeks ago. I am preparing the case to pursue her guarantor for possession order fee and damage remedial work. I suspect that she was working cash in hand as a hairdresser whilst claiming full HB. I think at some point she will get into trouble.

I was thinking of waiting about 3 months before I go after guarantor just in case I need to add on a large amount of rent arrears...

What is a sensible amount of time to wait?
