When a tenant is evicted or vacates the property of their own accord and still owes rent, the debt is classified as former tenant arrears.
This means that while you owe money to Cheltenham Borough Council for a previous tenancy, your chances of being re-housed by them and other social landlords is at risk and you may face County Court action for non-payment. This could result in a County Court Judgement (CCJ) being made against you which will adversely affect your credit rating.
