    Where do tenants go, leaving all their belongings and stuff (furniture itself has some value right?)

    Ouch! Hopefully you can recoup most of it.

    On side note... your kitchen look so much like mine in different colour[​IMG]

    I think that kind of damage would have taken some time to add up, how long ago did your PM do an inspection?

    Wow, my heart goes with you TMNT

    Do you mind give out a bit info as to who they are and how they managed to get into your properties ? did you screen them with PM ? anything a little bit suspicious from the beginning ?

    @TMNT ouch! Worse than my bogan tenant who trashed one of my rental properties. Mine was a charming lass who let her dog have puppies on the carpet... as you do!

    They were on a three month lease to start off. Fell behind after month 1. On a payment plan. And adhered to it. After the lease expired the agent recommended a month lease to give them a chance

    No real rental history as they just arrived from nz. They had enough income to cover their rent, apparently pleasant people. Lots of kids. I went by the pms recommendations

    Sorry to hear that TMNT, hopefully once the human filth is cleared and the damaged items are repaired you can find a decent tenant who can up hold their end of the deal.
    I think everyone is wondering how long were the tenants there and did your pm do regular inspections? Hopefully you can claim for most of the damage.
