I have just found out that my tenants has left their property 6 months early, have cancelled their direct debit and claim the property is covered in damp/condensation.
I took an independent person (estate agent) with me for my first viewing as the tenants couldn’t or wouldn’t go. There are several things wrong, large items of rubbish to be removed, window blinds missing, oven filthy, kitchen benches damaged due to chopping on them and the whole property has been badly painted with vinyl silk (looks like gloss) I only ever use matt.
The tenants have moved a few streets away, I know the street but not the number and are blaming damp/condensation and a new baby for moving out. When I viewed there was a tiny amount of spotted mould to a wall in the bedroom which just washed off.
I informed their estate agent before they moved out that they where tied into an agreement but they decided to still take them on as they had received an email from them stating that if they got the new property they would still pay the rent etc on the my property.
As soon as they moved out they cancelled the direct debit with me and the estate agent is refusing to give me a copy of the email
Would it be best to go though the small claims court or use a solicitor.
