Is there a scam going on that landlords are unaware of? When I was letting my property through an agent they took Â£500 bond of tenants in case of damages at the end of the letting period. At the end of each tenancy the tenants would "march out" and that would be the last I'd hear of them. However, my neighbors informed me that they were quite friendly with tenants as they came and went and often they were billed for damages etc and money was taken out of the bond. I was never informed of any damage and I can't recall any repairs being carried out before new tenants "marched in". A bit of a scam developing I think. How many agencies are billing out going tenants for repairs that are never carried out? Any simalar experiences out there?
