My ex tenant had a fixed term AST until 30-05-2020. He vacated the premises early without returning the house keys & vandalising the property. The matter was reported to the police & I was requested to take this with the civil courts.
He stopped paying in February 2020, April 2020, May 2020. Owing almost £1300 rent arrears.
The agent took his deposit of £750. I want to claim this money & he has disputed without giving any reasons. I have already e-mailed my bank statements to the agent as evidence. I also spent almost £500 to bring the property back to shape. What can I do next?
