Monday this week we had a tenant abscond owing rent. Much more than the deposit. (yes, they past references etc.)
The (now) ex-tenant point blank refused to give forwarding details. As is their right.
It turns out the move was very local. There was no stalking, no hanging around street corners dressed as a detective from a black and white movie, no social media searches, I simply went shopping last night for supplies to drown my sorrows over what I assumed was an unrecoverable loss (McGuigan Estate Chardonnay £5/bottle @ Sainsbury) and the information just plopped into my lap.
I want what is owed. What is my legal position?
Can I use this information for filing a claim, the court papers going to the new address?
If it turns out there are utility/council tax/other debts, can I give the information to these providers?
I don’t want to find that I am the bad guy, because I used the knowledge to make someone responsible for their own baggage.
