    Should tenant pay

    Some roof tiles on our house have become dislodged. They are right in the middle of the roof and not on an edge.

    The estate agent and roofer on looking at it from the ground suspect (as do we) that they have been forced upwards from inside the loft by the tenant. This will hopefully be confirmed one way or the other once the roofing contractor has been able to look at it properly.

    As the repair will involve scaffolding (at nearly £300) plus the cost of the repair we would like this to be recovered from the tenant if he has caused it.

    Is this reasonable?

    Are you trying to evict the guy?

      If the tenant caused the damage, the tenant should compensate the landlord for their loss.
      The roofer should be able to confirm what caused it, so that shouldn't be open to dispute.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).
