A landlord said he “nearly cried” when he saw the state his tenants left his house in.Daniel Needes, from Bridgend in Wales, had rented the house out for two years. He said the house had been in “immaculate condition” after it was renovated by his late father and had been kitted out with new appliances.
However, less than two years later, the tenants suddenly moved out without notice. When the landlord went to the house, he was shocked to discover the property had been completely trashed.
Daniel, a single father, said: “I went down to the house as soon as I could and that’s when I saw what they’d done.
“To be honest, when I first saw it I nearly cried. They had completely trashed it.”
He claims the family didn’t even tell him they were moving out. He says he only found out they had left when he received a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions – which paid the rent directly to Daniel – saying payments had stopped because he was no longer their landlord.
Photos of the interior of the house shared online are an eyesore.
In the kitchen, the tenants had left so many plastic carrier bags, crushed boxes, binbags and empty food containers. The trash completely covered the kitchen floor.
Dirty things were piled high in the sink, a greasy fryer was left on the side and a chest freezer half-filled with defrosted food was left wide open.
