Thanks for your reply.
How would I go about pursuing this to reclaim costs from the agency.
They have told me that they have no forwarding address for the ex-tenant and she is not answering her phone & I am assuming never will.
Therefore without her details I believe I cannot pursue her in the small claims court?
Do I pursue the agency in the small claims court instead?
Also I have accidental damage insurance for contents and buildings on the property so will contact my insurer to see if anything is covered.
But would I need to wait until the insurer does their bit before I can start on the agency or is it the other way round.
Would appreciate advise on where to start on it and what is the best plan of action!
