My last tenant stopped paying rent and refused me access since Oct 07.
Having been through the court process, she was evicted on 21st July only for me to find the property in an unbelievable state. The house has since had to be gutted, new kitchen, applicances, carpet throughout etc

It is now apparent she funded the rent previously via credit agents who I am now battling with and I can now see from her references the agency obtained that she blatently could not afford the property.

The agency were just on a finders fee basis. I have put in a warrant with the court baliff for collection of the rent arrears but a) they dont seem to be doing much, and b) she doesnt have anything anyway.

This was my first let and was in fact my old home. I have struggled throughout to get any advice and unfortunately only recently joined this site.

Is there anything else I can do to try and get any money back?
