The issue of costs that are the responsibility of the tenant?16:06 PM, 30th July 2019

My tenants of six months made an emergency call out for a plumber to unblock the kitchen sink. Plumber found a lollipop stick in th U bend which in turn had caused food waste to accumulate.
I am inclined to bill the tenants, but the argue they definitely did not drop a lollipop stick down the plug hole and that it was probably left over from a previous tenant.
I can’t prove they caused the blockage, likewise they can’t prove the didn’t.
If they refuse to pay the bill I have thought about issuing a notice to quit.
Any constructive advice would be welcome.
