The following Landlords Story about “Repeat fraudulent Tenants” came from a landlord who wishes to remain anonymous but who would also very much appreciate any advice you can offer.
“I let a property to a couple found through agents last year. They have failed to pay any rent since then, save for the deposit and the first month’s rent on securing the tenancy.
The agents had obtained employers references. The tenants also provided a bank statement showing a hefty bank balance.
Following assurances given about payment being made the next day or within a few days which never arrived, I Googled them and found a decision from a Rent Assessment Committee.
It gave the details of the previous landlady who has been contacted and advised that she had eviction proceedings last year and finally had them evicted by bailiffs – the day they moved into my property. The tenants had appealed possession orders and claimed disrepair and harassment which delayed the matter.
I have this week issued proceedings and am awaiting a hearing date. They have now raised issues of disrepair and harassment with me.
They have asked for damages, compensation and alternative accommodation whilst the work is being done and I presume that once they receive notice of my application, they will counterclaim or provide a defence.
Any advice that you can provide would be most appreciated. I really just want to get them out of my property and not have to pay them anything at all.
