  • Tenants have stolen my stuff!

    Title sums it up rather sucinctly. The current tenants in my property have stolen my items, namely white goods and beds.

    I'm never going to manage to get the money off them, but if I report it to the police, will they class it as criminal or will they fob me off and tell me its civil?

    As a side point, I have no idea where she lives.

    Advice always appreciated.

    You have nothing to lose by reporting it to the police. Have you got a guarantor you can chase? If not you know what to get next time.

      Use a tracing agent.
      Issue a small claims court action against the tenant(s).

          Hi

          i had exactly the same , reported it to ploice but did not think they would do anything .

          They were very interested and took it very seriously and quickly tracked him down and recovered the stolen goods ,
          Apparently he had done this a fair bit to several landlords, after moving in and the staying only a short while before disappearing with furniture and white goods etc.
          .
          Report it too the police , there is no reason why they should get away with it , it is theft .
