We evicted a long term housing benefit tenant who consistently failed to pay her rent and who became seriously in arrears. When she moved out, it cost us £7,500 to repair the damage to the property.
While the repairs were being done, paint was thrown on the exterior on more than one occasion, the fencing was flattened and rubbish strewn over the garden.
Our new tenants have been subjected to endless abuse, noise and the neighbour’s children climbing over the newly erected fence. The neighbour is very friendly with my former tenant and their early teenage daughters are best friends. This has obviously exacerbated the problem.
I wrote to the council and the Anti-Social Behaviour team is investigating. Needless to say, the neighbour is alleging that my tenant is smoking cannabis, threatening her children etc. A classic case of tit for tat. The neighbour and her children have been reported before for anti-social behaviour.
My problem is what do I do should my tenant move out? Will I have to advise new tenants of the neighbours? If so, I won’t easily find a tenant if at all. What action can I take to get compensation?
