I got rid of tenants belongings before she had 'properly' moved out
I called at the property and found it vacant but full of plastic bags a bed in bits upstairs and generally the place in a mess.
I tried to contact the tenant but got incorrect number. I had no way of making contact with the tenant. I went back twice and found no change or sign of return. So I decided crack on and try to re-let before Xmas. So I had everything cleared and the property cleaned (at an expense of £230)
Then on 23rd Nov I received a text from tenant saying 'where's all my stuff?' After a flurry of texts it transpires that although she had moved she thought she had a month's rent in hand (she was actually £800 in arrears) and also claims that her new letting agent said they would inform me (as well as 2 other agencies - not letting agencies) I did get confirmation that they would not have done that.
She is claiming compensation for the goods disposed of inc £500 for the pram (which certainly didn't look anything special)I am sure she will be getting onto someone to assist her.
She has left the place in quite a mess inc a broken d/g window.
How should I proceed?
