We have received a cry for help from Julie Dawson. Her tenant is being held on remand and the Police have caused damage to the property through forced entry.
Below is the email we received from Julie, what would you advise?
Hi Property 118
I have a question I was wondering if any of your readers could help me with …..
I look after a property for a landlord and had been notified by the council a few weeks ago that the tenant is regularly shop lifting to fund her drugs habit and that there is a warrant out for her arrest …. great I thought !!!
At this point I told the council to let whoever needs to know that I have several spare keys I could let them have, so feel free to let yourself in rather than break down the door. No sooner had I said this I called to the property a few days later and the front door was boarded up. The key doesn’t work in the lock now because the frame has been moved out, and I was told that because at this point she hadn’t been arrested, they could come back.
She has since been arrested and is now in prison waiting for her sentence.
So I emailed the police to ask who was going to pay for the replacement front door, which they have replied and said “not them” …. and to cap it off I received an invoice through the post today for £160 that they expect us to pay for the “boarding up”, they had done.
Surely this isn’t correct !!!!
Has anyone else had this happen to them, and if so is this right or can I take this further ???
