We are in dispute with a tenant that upped and left over a mouse in the house. That’s another story. However, they failed to read the meter on leaving and the electrical company have refused to refund them. They demanded we pay their electric bill and return their deposit.
We have no record of a deposit being paid nothing in the bank no receipt nothing on the tenancy agreement. The tenant has gone to no-win-no-fee solicitors who want copies of the tenancy, how to rent guide, electric and gas certificates and energy performance certificates.
The tenant has a copy of the tenancy agreement but must have lost it. What are readers’ views on what the solicitors should receive?
Our view is nothing as they have a tenancy agreement and the other things don’t relate to the deposit scheme except the how to rent guide. All were provided.
The tenant states they have a message saying I received the bond in cash. I haven’t got this message and they won’t share it!
