Damp moved out
I have a 2 bedroom bungalow currently let to a couple. They have reported that there is damp in the property and the property has become uninhabitable and it has damaged some of their furniture. There is some green mould on the wall behind furniture, but if I were to provide de-humidifiers and clean would it suffice to me taking reasonable steps. Their final months rent is due on the 12th of this month, but they have told me they will be moving out this weekend and will not be paying any further rent due.
Whilst there is damp at the property is this grounds for them to move out and not pay rent and am I liable for damage to their property. Indeed should they have informed me sooner about the damp problem?
