We would be interested in knowing how to go about recouping costs from tenants regarding the damage they have caused.
Our tenants left owing arrears and having caused significant damage to our property. We do not know where they are (although we do know where one of them worked/still may work).
We have received payment of the arrears as we had taken out an insurance with the letting agents. However, the house was left in a disgusting condition (despite the ‘management’ of an agency) and to put right the damage and so on will cost us a significant amount.
We are interested in tracing the tenants and recouping these costs in addition to recouping lost earnings while the house is unfit to re-let.
Does anyone know how we might proceed?
