    The locks are now changed.

    Ordinarily a replastered wall would be obvious, however, the wall was already damaged with mildew and partially painted with mildew paint so not obvious at first.

    He has literally lifted the carpet and removed concrete which has been repaired but it is clear where samples have been taken. They are like small drill holes. We only noticed this when we lifted the carpet to check the underlay as he had said the underlay was soaked which was false.


      I don't know these guys but I'd give them a ring, the law being so different over there...
      He sounds like he'll be trouble, but I'd be very inclined to find some way of proving I'd reported damage to Plod (? email??). Does your insurance require you to report criminal damage??

      You've taken lots of photos aye??
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


        You see I am very inclined to contact the police too, if only to get it logged. Not too sure about the insurance, I will check this tonight. I have lots of detailed photos and I have the management company coming this week to inspect it as the communal area is theirs to maintain. I am sure they will want to carry out their own investigations.
