Need some general advice on this.


Had problems with previous tenants who left the pace in a pig sty. New tenants moved in and we discovered we have an infestation of bedbugs. Have changed all the beds as advised and fumigated property.


Can I claim the cost of the replacement beds and fumigating from the previous tenants?


I have their deposit.

If you have their deposit then you should not!!! it should be in a deposit protection scheme until such time they claim it back and you agree deductions as necessary! They could sue you for non-protection and possibly get compensation of up to 3 times the deposit.

Could be a possible deduction; have you a report on the infestation and likely cause!

Thanks raydetinu


I have secured the deposit.


I have a report and it advises that it was more than likely caused by the previous occupants. I also have inventories of the property before and after. When the tenants, they left it in a filthy condition.
