Strictly Star faces eviction over alleged 20k rent arrears

Strictly Come Dancing star and ex of Sven-Goran Eriksson Nancy Dell’Olio faces eviction over alleged rent arrears of £20,400.

The £4 million luxury maisonette situated in Eaton Place, Belgravia, with floor to ceiling windows and flat-screen TVs in the lounge and bedroom, is owned by landlord Pridelands Ltd.

According to documents lodged at West London County Court, Miss Dell’Olio says she will be caused major difficulties if she is evicted with only 14 days’ notice.

If the British Virgin Island company succeeds in its bid for a possession order, Miss Dell’Olio could be forced to leave the two-bedroom home within 14 days or face the prospect of being forcibly removed by bailiffs.

Her defence claim form states:

‘The Defendant (Miss Dell’Olio) would suffer exceptional hardship as it is highly unlikely that suitable alternative accommodation will be secured within 14 days.’

A friend of Miss Dell’Olio said:

‘Nancy has lived beyond her means for some time. She always flies first-class and will not drink anything but champagne. At some stage the party has to stop.’

With the UK in danger of falling into a national rent debt crisis it doesn’t bode well when celebrities such as Dell’Olio cannot even live within their means!

Not only can Social Referencing reduce rent arrears, property damages, protect victims of anti-social behaviour, reduce ASB, reduce homelessness but it can and does send a clear message to tenants that there are just not enough properties and if they refuse to pay then their next landlord/agent will simply refuse to house them. And as this story highlights, the reason most tenants fall into arrears is because they cannot pay the rent in the first place.

So what is the likely-hood of them paying off their arrears in the future or running off, never paying them and going to another landlord down the road and repeating the cycle all over again?

Prevent yourself and the country from falling into a rent debt crisis by stopping the cycle now – simply by following our 5 point referencing plan, for only £12 (inc VAT).
