A tenant in a one-bed flat in Cardiff caused £20,000 of damage to the rented property. She also set fire to all her possessions and covered the walls in graffiti.
The landlord described the damage “horrendous” saying, “I’m speechless. It’s just utter carnage.”
The landlord had been battling to reclaim the one-bed flat for almost a year from the tenant who failed to pay her rent for ten months. She was also reported for antisocial behaviour.
The landlord said,
“Four months into the tenancy the payments just suddenly stopped. We couldn’t get hold of her and that is where the warning signals began. She’s a real problem tenant.”
Bailiffs were subsequently called to force entry.
