I had to evict a tenant in 2006 and have recently found out he was bankrupt at the time of the tenancy, in fact before it even began. I used a letting agent to perform a credit check on him and the bankruptcy check showed that he wasn't a bankrupt so on this basis we let the property to him.
I have 2 questions:
1. How do I get redress for being told he wasn't bankrupt when he was? And do I approach the letting agent or the credit check company who gave the false information.

2. I believe it's a breach of rules if a bankrupt takes credit during their bankruptcy. Who do I contact to make sure they know he has breached the rules by signing a tenancy agreement, which is a form of credit?
Thanks.
