DPS ADR process any experiences?

Reply to the comment left by "Lou Valdini" at "05/03/2015 - 17:05":

Thank you Lou. It is calling their bluff as they seem to have this misguided view that because the husband was once in the army, everyone on civvie street owes them something. If I don't stand up to them then I'm sure their present landlord will fall victim to their antics so they need to be stopped!... Read More

DPS ADR process any experiences?

Reply to the comment left by "Michael Barnes" at "03/03/2015 - 21:11":

I don't want to start legal proceedings against them even though I am out of pocket. Also as I don't have their forwarding address I couldn't. I just find it ridiculous that by not replying it would be deemed that I am saying yes. I will not be sending a cheque as I have no intention of giving these people a penny of what I no longer have due to their arrears and the cost of clearing up after them. I haven't yet found how DPS make the return of the deposit enforceable.... Read More

Thank you for your reply. I am still away but had an email from the DPS today so have replied. You didn't say whether you won your dispute but I hope you did. What actual power do the DPS have in making you repay if the tenants win because as far as I can see this isn't stipulated anywhere on their website. I'd rather leave the country than pay the scumbags the deposit back!!... Read More

Why are my tenants trying to destroy me?

Hi again to all who took the trouble to reply to my post. Just an update, as i said they did move out on 9th Jan without leaving a forwarding address or my keys which were never returned through their solicitor...surprise,surprise!! Anyway they have now opened a dispute with the DPS to which I have 10 days to reply, forwarding a cheque for the £1000 deposit whilst the independent adjudicator makes their decision as to whether they should get their deposit back. They owe £1200 in rent arrears, over £400 for electricity and they left mountains of mess and rubbish behind so as far as i'm concerned they can whistle for it. There's also no end of letters from debt collectors arriving for them.
I've gone away on a course without replying so by the time i get back the 10 days will be up so what happens then? The letter wasn't sent by recorded delivery so how can they prove i received it? I really don't need all of this again, i'm still not well but am trying to get on with life and this course is part of a new job which i love and i'm not going to let them overshadow it but have no idea of what this ADR process is. Can any of you lovely people help again please? Thanks again Carla... Read More

Why are my tenants trying to destroy me?

Thank you for all of your comments and advice. The tenants have left this morning whilst I was not there but have told a neighbour that they will send the keys to me through their solicitor. I obviously have spare keys and will go and change the locks. I can only assume I am allowed to do this as they have left breaking their tenancy or have they got some right to the property until their tenancy end date in March. I have had no written confirmation from them either. This is all so frustrating.... Read More
