I had a tenant leave me with little notice, even though the agreement between us clearly stated that either party had to notify the other in writing at least a full month before terminating the agreement. They left within two weeks saying that they couldn’t contact me via my mobile phone even although they had my house phone number and my address.
We denied them their deposit back due to the fact that they had broken 3 doors (one was missing altogether) , the oven door was broken and a kitchen drawer was broken as well. They left a lounge suite, bed and some other things in the back courtyard despite telling me that they were hiring a van to remove it but then said that they had called the council for a free uplift. On calling the council myself, after this was not picked up, I realised that they had not arranged that either.
They left no forwarding address and maintained that all bills were fully paid and up to date. I later learned that they still owed over £100 to the Electrical Utilities provider. I managed to get in touch via telephone with my tenants to raise this and they said of course they had every intention of settling this but never have.
I now have the utilities provider chasing me for the outstanding amount, where do I stand here?
I have provided the electricity company with phone numbers for them to try and contact the former tenants.
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.
