Tenants use apartments to commit crimes

Tenants use apartments to commit crimes

Owners of property in the UK are increasingly faced with the arbitrariness from tenants. They violate terms of contracts, they are late with payments, to secretly move out in order not to pay for the last month, or even use apartments to commit crimes, reports ee24.com citing propertywire.com. 

26% of tenants do not fit into the schedule of payments, 18% keep pets without the knowledge of the owners. But the worst is yet to come. Every tenth tenant hiddenly disappears in order not to pay for the last month, and the same number of tenants admitted that they had committed a crime or that the neighbors had called the police. 

According to the legislation of the United Kingdom owners are responsible for whatever happens in their homes. For example, if the tenant produces cannabis or some banned chemicals then the owner can be blamed. If the owner did not bother to check the right of the tenant to stay in the country, and the latter is missing, a fine can be up to £3,000.
