Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
My former tenant is threatening to sue me for slander. This is based off a conversation my mother had with one of the neighbours. My mother mentioned that the tenant had left the apartment filthy with a significant amount of damage and that she was in arrears in her rent. All of which is true. She was responding to the fact that the neighbour commented that my former tenant had not received her deposit back as I had not turned up when she was leaving. However my mother clarified that there was no deposit due back and in fact it had been arranged that the letting agent would collect the keys.
The neighbour also expressed some opinions about the tenant, namely the care of her children, that there were parties, that they were like travellers, her children robbed bread from her..etc
I personally have not discussed the tenant with any neighbours. Should I be worried? I do not appreciate the harrasment either so could I countersue for damages to my property? Is it worth the hassle given this girl has no money and is living on social welfare. My initial inclination was to put the experience behind me - however her arrogant threats have now made me rethink the situation.
No I have not resolved the matter and I am still looking for a response on this matter.
