In my last blog post I was throwing my toys out of pram because I was having to evict my tenant. I had an urge to stick my tenant’s head in the meat grinder because she was a few days away from falling 2 months in arrears.
I was actually hoping she would fall into 2 months arrears so I had legal grounds to serve her with a Section 8 Notice and begin the process of evicting her dumb arse. Well, as the title blatantly suggests, the stupid tart failed to make the payments, so now I can get the ball rolling on the eviction process…
Yesterday my tenant received her eviction notice through the post. The Section 8 notice is basically a legal notification used to terminate a Tenancy Agreement during the fixed term because a tenant has breached the agreement. The notice specifies for whom the notice is for, and the exact ground which she has breached. In my tenant’s case, she breached Ground 10:
Ground 10: Any amount of rent is in arrears at the date of service of the notice and remains unpaid on the date on which the proceedings for possession are begun.
The waste of space parasite has 14 days to respond. She can either roll over and die by accepting the notice and vacate the property or if she’s feeling feisty and continues to act as stupid as she looks, she can carry on staying in the property and force me to proceed with a court order.
My Tenant’s Response After Receiving The Eviction Notice
She contacted me yesterday morning all huffy and puffy, whimpering…
I received an eviction notice
Yeah, you owe two months rent, so I have legal grounds to evict you on. I have tried getting rent from you for a while now, and you keep giving me excuses, and failing to meet your promises. What did you expect would happen? I’ve been patient, and you seem to ignore all my calls.
I heard an irritated “URGH”, and then she hung up on me like I was yesterday’s news, and today’s fish n’ chip paper! Shame.
The woman just doesn’t help herself. Running away from the issue is pointless; hanging up the phone isn’t going to help her right now. I don’t know what she expects, and the Lord only knows why she sounded so surprised/annoyed by all this. It’s like when criminals get caught, they act like injustice is being served by inflicting a penalty. What planet are these people living on?
Right, so I have just less than 14 days to wait in order to determine what my next actions will be. If she doesn’t vacate my property, then so be it. I have no qualms with taking her to court and watching her BURN IN HELL! Bearing in mind, this blood sucking cockroach is receiving social benefits, which means she’s receiving a monthly allowance from the Government to pay her rent. Where the fuck is that money going?
