Not for the faint hearted

We know this is hard to believe but....

This is the starting point - all properties are of this standard...but then...

As Registed Landlords we always provide clean, well appointed, well maintained and safe accommodation. Sadly some tenants do not understand their responsibilities and even after references are taken up things go wrong. People change, go through hard times, fall in with a bad crowd......and the result is often that they fail to pay their rent/organise their benefits and go into a downward slide.

As landlords we have to give proper warning and follow procedures and this can take a long time. During this time the tenant can destroy your property and become a general nuisence to the neighbours. We always take legal action and will not tolerate anti-social behaviour. Of course the Landlord has to pick up the tab but although the financial cost is painful what hurts most is the complete disregard of the home that has been entrusted to the tenant.

A word of warning to fellow Landlords - don't count on your Insurance..sadly some below were deemed to be 'wear n tear' despite the fact we followed legal procedure and informed them of every step.

Below are examples of some of the damage we have experienced, in some cases whilst waiting for the legal process to finally evict the tenants. 

WARNING

THIS IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.

We also want to say to all our tenants that look after their properties

A BIG THANK YOU!

YOU ARE WORTH YOUR WEIGHT 

IN GOLD!!
