Re: Tenant not paying rent: any advice?

You need him out of your flat now. I would also think about direct methods of intervention. I had to deal with the same problem (in London) and employed a security firm to evict the tenant.
There was a bloke in newcastle who had a solution to these problems I knew. Because it costs a fortune to get them out in legal fees and time and all that and because he rented out student housing which wasnt that fancy anyway then if he got squatters in over the student summer holidays (meaning his tenants would not be able to start in october when uni kicked off) then he went round and knocked on the door and asked them to move. Then when they didnt he popped down the scrapyard and picked up an old fridge or similar sized object, waited until a couple of days later and in the evening then drove back round and with the help of a colleague through the fridge through the front room window with a shouted message of "get out of my fooking flat",which did the trick every time and the cost of a new window was cheaper than the cost of all teh legal stuff.

so perhaps he also doesnt buy tickets on trains, but it got the job done.
