    If you want to go further, I did hear that the rate is $10,000 for harm to an arm, $15,000 to deal to a leg.
    You'd need the rent to be a fair bit in arrears to incur that sort of a bill.

    Just have three or four of them standing at your shoulder and slightly behind you with instructions to eyeball the debtor. No speaking, no motions. Just stand there. What's illegal about that?

    I would say possibly illegal, but definitely a good idea. Are you sure she's not a slapper?

    Rumour has it some landlords have enlisted the help of their local motorcycle enthusiasts club to assist in recoverys.... which is illegal and a bad idea.

    So been down to collections unit today, and they said no no interest is charged (despite the sum being well over the 3K metioned previously), so given that she singed her new agreement as a poor single mother of two, but lives with ther partner, she herself gets well over $ 600 how much am I realisticly going to get back each week? with no interest charged it is an interest free loan --- given she got everything new on hp/finance prior to the last hearing not much point in getting the debt collection company involved (plus they are not exactly great given they are chasing one of my extentants for more than 3 years though they left 3 years ago, I even gave them their new address, still letters keep coming).

    Debt collection is a total waste of time for most tenants. If they don't care about their credit rating and have no assets, what can a debt collector do? Even with an attachment order on her benefit, you'll probably have to repeatedly chase WINZ to continue paying it. I found that it got stopped multiple times then restarted as her file was reviewed.

    Give it to the debt collectors... If you ask me it's not worth the hassle doing it yourself unless you get personal satisfaction out of it.

    thank Keys, yes unfortunately for me it is well over 3K as she didn't think not paying rent was enough she also trashed the house which was just refurbished --- thanks to the delays in TT hearings and her prolonging the hearing making up lies it took several sittings, she used the time to sell all she had for cash and took everything new from dtr/mr rentals/ loans from few companies even used the old car as a collateral to buy new one worth well over 10 grand, now I hear she is on holiday in oz......
    but will certainly chase her otherwise she will think she got away with it, might create a new record, drelly's 4 years will look like express

    If your award is over a certain amount ($3k I think) you can register it with the court and charge interest on the outstanding amount. May as well do that also.

    Well done you are a credit to all LL's drelly.

    And I bet she will think twice next time she ends a tenancy owing money to the LL... Or perhaps she has now learned how to get an interest-free loan with low repayments spread over 4 years...

    I had one tenant take 4 years to repay a tribunal order. There was a degree of satisfaction in knowing I was a pain in her side for that long.

    It is like getting blood out of a stone when chasing ex tenants. It is a shame that there is little pressure put on tenants to repay outstanding monies. Do as described above and get a bailiff to go round to her property ( although, sad to say, that probably won't do much either).

    Regards

    Get court order for payment

    See of a bailiff will go after the nice new toys (even though they are on HP).

    Good luck.
