Help, my tenant is causing damage to the property and have been there just over 2 years now on periodic tenancy. I have been letting below market value as I knew them and was trying to do them a favour.
Now they have complained to council about condensation and mold! I have spoken to council and explained that they are not cleaning the windows or allowing air flow through house. They only have the heating on 2 hours as they can’t afford heating bills? First I knew was when I got a letter and went to house and was shocked by state of it. Lots of damage!
When I told them the rent going up to £1,100 per month they told me they couldn’t afford it on housing benefit and they now want a section 21 to help them? The council will only pay £850 a month so they will have a shortfall?
I was looking for help please as to what to do next. I want them gone and it will cost to put house right again.
Any information would be greatly appreciated as I am fed up with tenants that trash house.
Many thanks in advance
