Tenant Done A Runner
If your tenant has buggered off and still owes you rent or has damaged your property you are probably upset, this is natural, here we’ll have a quick look about what options are available to you and hoe we can help you by tracing them to their next address. It is estimated that 10% of tenants will become large pains in your arse at one time or another so it is best to have all weapons sharpened and ready for when they do.
If they do a runner you have to be careful to look at the matter objectionably, can you be bothered going to the trouble of trying to get your money back? Surely, its good to know where they have gone so you can at least send a letter to ask for your money back* but you are you just better off getting them out of your life. They sat that if you wake up things about your tenant and not your family you have the wrong tenant, so if they were a royal pain maybe you are better off forgetting about them. Still nice to have their address and maybe send a solicitors letter though?
*Careful, you can be charged with harassment if you do much more than politely ask for your money back! which doesn’t seem fair when the mortgage company are harassing you!
