Witholding of utility bills arrears from Deposit

mike mccannon asked 2 years ago

My tenants gave notice on 8th March and their Tenancy ends on 7th March. I found out on 9th February that they have another tenancy about 5 miles away which apparently started on 22/01/15. They have agreed that they are liable for rent until 7th March and have been using my property for storage, rent is up to date so far. They have been obstructive in allowing access for inspection visits / minor repairs over the last two weeks, inisting on Tenancy rights, contacting Shelter etc. In view of the imminent departure, I have not pushed this but have found out that they have told the Utility Companies that they fully vacated my property on 22/01/15. I have sent contract copies and proof of rental payment to the Utility Companies. I am considering asking for proof of payment for all Utilities up to 7th March before the deposit is released from the TDS - I calculate that this is likely to be just over £200. Any thoughts? Mike
