Tenant did not pay and caused damage.

Recommended Posts

A roommate decided to leave the property. The roommates dog caused damage to the carpet and also did not pay for two months worth of bills. The roommate was officially was out and no longer welcome to the property, but was allowed to enter the property by another roommate that was not aware. Is there anything that can be done?

Done?

 

About what?

 

What is your goal here?

 

And what state are you in?

 

And was the roommate your tenant or your landlord's tenant? In other words, what was the arrangement between you and your roommate(s)? Anything in writing?

To be sure there are things to be done, but you need to be more specific about what it is you want to know.  If this is your tenant and this person moved out, please note that doesn't prevent another tenant from inviting that person to come into the place. 

As a landlord, you're naturally free to pursue the money owed for rent and damages.  If this person is a co-tenant and you are on the hook for the relevant dough, you're free to sue this person the same way (through the courts) for money output due to his/her breach.

The roommates dog . . . did not pay for two months worth of bills. 

 

Dogs tend to be very cash poor, so it's not really reasonable to expect them to pay bills.

 

 

 

Is there anything that can be done? 

 

Sure.  There are literally hundreds of thousands of things that can be done.  Is that really what you intended to ask?
