    Theft from Property

    Having issues with a tenant who stole from the property, how have people got on with this are the police interested or do they just call it a civil matter?

    Stole what exactly, it can be dodgy given if he has taken say a washing machine then he could easily argue he brought it into the property, unless you have an innovatory of course, but there is a real danger of them going down the civil matter route.

      For future reference, the poilice will be more interested if you postcode your goods and/or make a note of their serial numbers.

        The Police are so stretched that unless you have solid evidence of the theft, and know the whereabouts of the tenant, they will not take any action beyond logging the crime and issuing a crime number so that you can claim off your insurance if you need to.

        If you have a deposit, the Deposit Protection Scheme are likely to offer an easier form of recourse.

          The police are not interested and told me to stop emailing them with all the photos of the items stolen. I suppose if I keep asking them they will do me for wasting police time.

            Your best bet if you know where the tenants are is to sue them.
