    My landlord friend finally applied for a tribunal hearing to evict his regular non-payment tenant.
    The hearing date is two weeks away.
    He went to tribunal today to get himself familiar with the place/process.
    He was given a "Hearing Note" to fill out before the hearing.
    In the Hearing Note, there is a text box called "Days in arrears on receipt (of the termination notice by tenant)".

    I am wondering how days in arrears are correctly calculated?
    Let's say weekly rent was due on 1/4/2016.
    If rent was not received by 1/4/2016, do we count that as 7 days in arrears or just 1 day in arrears?

    yup 1 day.

    I'm confused, are you the tenant? if so shouldn't you be working out how to pay your debts instead of wasting time on PC?

    Judging from some previous posts "My landlord" actually is the landlord friend that htopg is helping out.

    I am a landlord's friend and I am a landlord myself.
    This is a question from my landlord friend who is going to evict his tenants due to frequent non-payment of rent.

    I feel that the tribunal is not very lenient to landlords.
    If termination notice is served on the day that is just 13 day rent in arrears, then it is invalid.
    That's why I want to make sure that the calculation on the days of rent-in-arrears is correct.
