A contentious question I know..but.....having been through the whole expensive nightmare of doing everything by the book to evict our tenants, which took 6 months, lots of money in legal fees we will not get back..a court order for 5,000 which we will have to spend more money to get back, a house full of rubbish and damage......and the danger of loosing the house because of our financial position.
I find myself asking why we did not just change the locks and let the tenants do the chasing through the courts.
Aquaintances with properties have gone down alternative routes I discovered today...and not bothered with the courts....
The system seems to favour the tenants. We have been very fair landlords, law abiding, but incredible naive and gullible it seems to me, and until the law is more favourable and quicker to resolve these cases I can understand landlords taking the law into their own hands.
