Advice on damaged property

I would be very grateful for your advice.

I have a property that has been recently vacated by a tenant who has caused approximately £3000 of damage (as quoted by local contractors to put things right).

The tenant was found for us by a recognised management agency who we employed for a full management service (full service being tenant vetting, rent collection and property management). The property was occupied by the tenant from Dec 2012 to Dec 2013.

During this time we have had concerns about the management company and the service they provide and now believe no inspection of our property has been carried out during the term of this tenancy. Only upon the tenant leaving has all the damage been identified.

The tenants deposit is £800 leaving me £2200 out of pocket.

What is my best course of action?
