    Hi

    We have an unusual case and we are not sure who to make the final payment too.

    The tenant is currently in receipt of the benefit payments. However, the landord has now done a bunk, and the mortgage company have issued notice of eviction and the tenant has to move out on 19.11.10.

    Tenant has not paid rent since September as they do not know who to pay it too.

    Do we therefore pay the final payment to the tenant and assume they will do the right or do we consider paying the mortgage company. Obviously the landlord is not an option as he is the one who has done a bunk.

    thanks

    Is the mortgage company charging a fee for occupation?

    Hi Kay

    I don’t believe so, just issued a notice of eviction.

    thanks

    As long as you are satisfied that there is still a liability I would continue to pay the claimant. What other option do you have?

    If they are going ahead with an eviction and are not charging the claimant for occupying the property then there can’t be a case to pay HB. I would supersede previous award from the earliest possible date

    Hi
    Property is due to be repossessed on 19 November 2010.

    So am I right in thinking that as the landlord has done a runner and the mortgage company want to repossess, that his liaiblity to pay rent to the landlord ends for him, from the date that landlord has gone.

    thanks

    So the landlord still owns the property, the claimant still lives there, and the tenancy has not yet been terminated by either party. Regardless of the landlord’s whereabouts I think there is still a liability up to the date of the eviction/reposession.
