Bankrupt Pete Burns Evicted From Flat

Bankrupt Pete Burns Evicted From Flat For Owing £34K To Distraught Landlord.

The star’s former landlord claims he suffered a mental breakdown due to the stress of renting to the singer.

Bankrupt Pete Burns was evicted from his London flat today after failing to pay more than £30,000 in rent.The Dead Or Alive star was not present this morning when legal representatives from his landlord came to repossess the property.A possession order, seen by Mirror Celebs, shows the 55-year-old owes £34,000, including legal cost.

Pete, who has been declared bankrupt, and his long-term partner Michael Simpson, have reportedly caused the landlord to suffer a breakdown due to the stress of the situation.Paul Shamplina founder of Landlord Action, the landlords legal representatives that carried out the evictions told us: “We carried out the eviction this morning, with the bailiffs from the court.

“This has been a complete nightmare for the landlord, he has lost over £34’000 in rent and has suffered a breakdown because of the stress caused by the tenants not paying him the rent and various incidents at the flat, where he’s received numerous complaints.”

Unfortunately he was too understanding to Mr Burns problems, which has resulted in him being owed over £34,000 and lost so much time , as well as affecting his own well being.”

Shamplina continued: “Obviously its harder for the landlord, as he used to live in the property, so he has an emotional tie to it.

“We are constantly offering advice and educating landlords about their obligations , when they are having to go through the stress of going to court and evicting a tenant.”Pete, who’s best known hit is You Spin Me Around, has remained relatively out of the public eye since appeared on CBB on 2006.

Precise Treatment Reduces Pain

Detail needs experts. Expert time is worth it when it saves you a costly mistake. Main objective: Get the property back. Best action: Very precise treatment.

Serving a notice is actually the most important part of the possession process.

It isn’t complicated but one tiny error can cause dreadful problems.

That’s why we say, don’t DIY and don’t use internet amateurs. It’s not worth it.

1. Compliance Errors
If the tenant doesn’t leave at Step1, the notice had better be valid. Because then it has to go to court. Any little error can get a case thrown out. And you have to start all over again.

2. Attempting Short-Cuts.
In an effort to be quick, some internet services aimed at landlords are using short-cuts around the process. But if the tenant doesn’t leave (50%) these practices can backfire at court and the case thrown out.

3. Trying to Save Pennies.
Internet services have mushroomed and landlords can expect to get what they pay for. To get the process done PROPERLY it takes a certain amount of time for an expert to look over a file and be accurate. Our fees cover that expert time.

Chasing courts for dates, arranging advocates and preparing court papers is time consuming. Especially if you’ve never done it before.

Some landlord and agents have served notices themselves. They believed they were saving a few pounds but it often ended up costing them more.

If you lose a claim, the court can order you to pay the tenant’s defence cost, which can run to hundreds or thousands of pounds.

Our in-house Solicitors are there to get your property back as fast as they can. And we protect landlords and agents from themselves.

As experts, we know that in the rush to get things done, errors can happen. And those errors can can come back later to mess up your case – and the whole process has to start again.

You can speed things up – give us accurate information quickly. Help us to help you.

There are services on the web who will prepare papers BUT they get you to pay the court-fee separately and get you to sign the court papers – so in fact they don’t represent you!

If your notice (at Step1) wasn’t drafted or served correctly you risk wasting your court fees and losing a whole lot of time because of a small error.

We won’t let your case anywhere near a court until we have checked every little detail. To make sure you don’t waste time or money, at Step-2 we first only charge part of the fee.

If your notice is fine, then you just pay the balance of the fee and we issue the claim. If there is a problem with your notice or paperwork, we will advise you what to do next.

Courts take the view that possession proceedings can make someone homeless. So they are very careful. If there’s any error in the notice, they throw the case out. It’s the process. Get it right or lose.

If the notice is invalid, you have to start all over again. The weeks or months you’ve waited are wasted. If there were rent arrears, there are now more.

If there weren’t rent arrears, they might now start. More fees. More lost rent. And still no possession. Tenants can be alerted to making a counter-claim.
