A property I manage was raided by the police end of october for alleged firearms at the property. The occupier is a single mom I have known for 18months. She works nights and was asleep when the police knocked the door with a warrant, before she could get to the door to let them in they rammed the door and caused 700.00 of damage. The landlady has paid the bill but we are not sure about who is 'responsible' for the damage. The police are saying they are not liable because they had 'good information' to get a warrant in the first place, its up to the landlords insurance to pay it!

I am quite furious, this seems so unfair that basically it could happen to anyone, what if it was a malicious tip off? this is a church going lady with a daughter and she has three part time jobs to pay her bills.

can I take this anywhere if the police are not prepared to compensate?

any help appreciated
