Bad Tenants Directory?
Putting my anger aside for the moment, that it took so long (4 months)to get to that point going the legal route due to courts (Salford) inefficiency - and the tenant getting away with £6K rent (its a luxuary apartment - £1350 a month)... I have since discovered he had previously done the same thing in another block across 100yds away (Salford Quays) previously. And given the amount of debters, unpaid police fines for speeding and parking, unpaid council tax, electric, etc I am now finding - its likely he's doing the same thing to another landlord somewhere. (Well in fact I know where!)
My question is - can the RLA not run a confidential register of bad tenants? I can see it wouldn't be any where near comprehensive but may would at least give you the satisfaction of putting your bad tenant on the list! I did find somthing on the net but it cost a £5 to look at the list, so I passed on adding him to that as I'd decided he'd cost me more than enough!
