A tenant sneaked out 2 months into a 6 month tenancy without paying for the rent. At the start I took a deposit, emailed them the certificate but didn’t send the prescribed information as I couldn’t find it and then forgot about it later.
The tenant complained about damp which I had previously stated was condensation due to drying clothes on radiators without good ventilation. I had bought a dehumidifier – that they didn’t use.
The second conversation I again told them “it’s condensation stop drying clothes – use the drier and ventilate better” but again they ignored me. I was concerned about the black mould and said I’d wallpaper the key areas to thermally insulate the cold walls from the warm damp air.
When they left they had not paid the 2 months rent – for all sorts of excuses… I wrote to them asking for the 2 months rent plus utilities or I’d claim the whole lot via the small claims court. After some abusive texts and phone calls I applied to small claims court. They are fighting the claim in full.
My first question is because I didn’t send them the prescribed info could this impact the case?. I’m pretty sure everything else is fine. Also I’m wanting to re-rent the property – so do I have to Section 21/ Section 8 the tenant even if they’ve already left?
Grateful for your help
