    So the tenants are still in arrears, tribunal let them stay till end of lease (grrrr) and now they're refusing to move out so the bailiffs and locksmith are locked in for tomorrow. My PM (who's admitted she has never used a bailiff before....) haven't been able to confirm who's paying. Me or collect that money off whatever is left of the bond? Logic says the latter but there's no logic when it comes to tenants.

    Apparently the son is too busy/ashamed to tell his olds that the lease is now renewed...

    Initially you have to pay the costs as some tribunal fees need to be paid up front.
    I take it that you already have a bond release in place if it's gotten to eviction time?

    you can claim costs from the bond later.
