I own the ground floor flat in a block of 3 and my tenant is leaving next week at the end of his 6 month AST. Although he indicated to me that he loved the place and would stay, he was unable to stay due to the noise in the above flat.
I sorted this problem out with the above flat’s landlords as it was a HMO, the police and environmental health were involved too. After all the problems with this including eggs thrown at the window of my flat and verbal abuse to our tenant and his wife,who left him to live elsewhere as the pressure became to much, it was no wonder that he didn’t want to stay. One of the people upstairs was a drugs dealer and subsequently deported back to his own country.
It is leasehold but the leaseholder doesn’t do anything – we pay for maintenance and upkeep of the property, split 3 ways between us. Insurance is separately sorted by each flat.
The question I have is do I have any come back from the Landlord of the above flat as it is due to him that I have lost my ‘long term tenants’ and now the flats are looked at as not a nice place to live, therefore it may be a while before we have any more tenants, so we will be financially out of pocket. We may even have to sell the flat so may loose out on the selling price too.
Can I sue or take him to the small claims court for loss of earnings or capital?
