You know I thought it couldn't get any worse!!
2 years I've had my house up for sale. In that time I've had 3 tennants, all of which have caused some kind of damage.
The 3rd (and final) did a midnight flit with 3 months left in their contract. So with no rent coming in I turned to my agent for the bond. Only to find he's been "off with stress"
What a big LIE. The truth has now come out and he's been sent down for 2 years for fraud!!! The story is he somehow got to manage a couple's mortgage (I think he set up as a mortgage consultant aswell) and pocketed the 125,000 UKP.
Now we find out all the bond money taken from landlords like me, never went into the bond holding place but again into his back pocket.
Since finding this out, my dad, on my behalf has been down to the police station to report him. So once he's out for this crime, he'll have questions to answer about my money and probably a few more irate landlords who haven't got their bond back.
My house is now up for sale and tenant free!! I'm praying for a quick sale!
