I had a tenant under an AST who failed to pay the last two months rent, decorated (badly) without consent and kept a dog in the basement, again without consent. Having finally got rid, the guarantor and tenant agreed to redecorate and replace the soiled carpet. To be honest, I wish they hadn't as the standard was appalling. I had also had to replace the UPVC front door from damage caused by someone living with her.

The AST and Dee of Guarantee were both templates from the RLA web site.

I am very unlikely to get a penny from the ex-tenant (debt collectors are already trying to get hold of her for previous debts) so my question is this.

When can I begin recovery proceedings against the guarantor? Must I exhaust all options first with the tenant including small claims?

Thank you
