Stirlings tenants scarper

Sir Stirling Moss one of the most high profile celebrity landlords has had a recent unfortunate experience with one of his tenants.  Stirling who has approximately 40 tenants within his central London residential investment portfolio and is assisted in his day to day management by his daughter in law has had a recent lettings nightmare.

One of his tenants an Italian chef has absconded from one of his Pimlico apartments leaving seven months unpaid rent and 'nicking' all the furnishings

Sir Stirling commented: ‘The flat was trashed. It took seven weeks just to get a court order to remove them and then we had to wait another two months to apply for bailiffs.

‘I consider myself a good ­landlord who is always fair, and I think the law is weighted against decent landlords like myself.’

Even experienced landlords are not exempt from bad tenants!

Remember to avoid a letting nightmare always reference your tenants properly and if in doubt get a guarantor.

Instant tenant reference
