Tenants from hell left one of my properties in January. I suffered lies, harassment, verbal abuse and filth. I wanted to retain 150 deposit to clean bearing in mind I incurred at least 600 cost + a stomach ulcer and shingles - I learn today the deposit was awarded to the tenants. Landlords beware the DPS is NOT impartial - they are there to protect the tenant's deposit - DPS does not care that we have been ill treated or that tenants have left a mess - even with photographic evidence tenants will win and in turn that will sure give them carte blanche to be even more abusive to other landlords. As an aside only give 6 months tenancy because you recognise a bad tenant from the beginning and if he has 1 year contract you have to put up with the aggravation for all that time. Having said that I would say 90% of tenants are good, they respect the place and their landlord but you still have 10% who are scumbags.
