I am facing eviction and I am dealing with this but a letter from the management company has given me cause for concern.

 

In an eviction letter there is a line 'Before we start court proceedings which incur costs which you will be liable.'

 

I am used to dealing with Debt collectors and they usually insert the word 'MAY'. I believe this company have broken guidelines. I notice they also arrange finance so it would be fair to say they must be governed by consumer credit.

 

In short I believe they have used threatening and misleading language and wondered if people agree with me. Thanks people.

 

Also if this is the case who do I report this to to stop other people suffering the same threatening behavior.


We live in an unmoderated country why should the net be any different?

Bring back free speech we miss it!

Was this a S.21 eviction notice?

S.8? Another section??

 

It isn't "threatening" if they have grounds to evict you (do they? Usually eg unpaid rent?), and are obliged to warn you:

a) they intend to seek a court order

b) they intend to recover their costs.

 

You may say it is "threatening", but you'd likely be equally aggrieved if they didn't warn you and the first you knew was a notice of the hearing (including notice they were seeking costs!)

"incur costs which you will be liable"

 

This is not only untrue its is purposely designed to threaten. That is why debt collectors are so careful to use the word 'may'.As in may incur costs, not you will incur costs.

But : you haven't answered the questions I asked.

Do you feel them not relevant?

What does the lease say about them recovering costs? If the lease allows them to it might well be "will" rather than "may"

They are acting as a landlord / letting agency, not a DCA!
