Police damage to rental property

Police damage to rental property

Police broke into one of our tenants homes by smashing the door to get in but discovered no evidence and did not charge our tenant. Police damage to rental property

The tenant has said that they have done nothing and don’t know why the police raided them.

The police say “the tenant has been mixing with the wrong people” is that a crime?

Who is responsible for the repair cost – or is it Muggins!

Thanks

You wouldn't happen to be the same infamous Farah Damji as I found on Wikipedia would you?

Yes.
Same one.
Now a perpetrator of Good Things. Rather than crime and destruction!

I should really go edit my glorious Wikipedia. If I cared enough what people think!

With your past record I think you will find it very difficult to persuade others to trust you.

Why are you targeting Property118 readers?

As I said...if I cared. My company works with central and local government and the biggest developers in London.
Have a great day! I know I am.

No this is not the way...you should write to the police head team and seek advice about it.

Right well . Getting back to the police and damaging the property I had the police carry out a raid on one of mine a couple years ago. First i knew was when the police called me to ask me to attend the property in order to make it secure . They had also damaged the inside of the property looking for drugs . My tenant was held untill court case and then was sent to prison . I was unable to get any money towards costs from the police and as my tenant was in prison that was that . My bill .

To update all the posts on my case - the police did find something (but are unable to say this or discuss due to confidentiality, human rights etc. etc.) the tenant has admitted but says not their stuff but left by a friend!!! - so I will try to get costs off tenant but probably end up taking the cost on the chin.

Explains the process for searches, and says that should be a clear preference for settling claims for damages that arise.
