  • “how many cash strapped or bankcrupt BTLers will simply run off with the money?”

    If they do, they’ll have the double whammy of a CCJ (which means they won’t get another mortgage for at least 7 years) and the bailiffs will come round to get three times the desposit back from them, by walking off with whatever they can find.

    Not nice.

  • If they are already facing reposession of their buy to let property, then this CCJ isn’t going to make things any worse for them.

  • Yes, but defaulting on a CCJ is essentially a criminal offence. If they have no assets, or the bailiffs can’t trace them, they effectively become fugitives.

  • No surprise… a website called Gumtree promotes all these dodgy landlords.. Adds a whole new meaning to the term “Up a Gumtree”.
