When ten­ants leave be­hind a part­ing gift

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

WHEN leav­ing a rental prop­erty, would you take all your pos­ses­sions?

Ap­par­ently some peo­ple don’t.

Ac­cord­ing to one let­tings com­pany a whole host of valu­able items are left be­hind.

One re­port is of a ten­ant who left his Range Rover be­hind.

It sat in a park­ing space; the keys with a porter.

When the let­ting agent con­tacted the for­mer ten­ant in­form­ing him that the ve­hi­cle needed to be re­moved, he was told to keep it.

Un­for­tu­nately this wasn’t al­lowed and the ten­ant even­tu­ally ar­ranged for some­one to pick it up. And this isn’t a one-off. An­other let­ting agent was shocked to en­ter what was sup­posed to be an un­fur­nished flat af­ter the ten­ancy ended only to find that ev­ery­thing had been left be­hind – fur­nish­ings, paint­ings, de­signer clothes and even Swarovski fig­urines.

The ten­ant was al­ready half­way around the world so the pos­ses­sions were even­tu­ally do­nated to char­ity.

The same out­come awaited some de­signer clothes and ac­ces­sories which had been left be­hind.

A char­ity shop was de­lighted to re­ceive them, espe­cially as they were still in their orig­i­nal bags with the tags at­tached.

Some other items which have been left be­hind in­clude: ●● A toupee left in a bis­cuit tin ●● A pair of trainers that had to be sent via DHL to Syd­ney ●● An en­tire win­dow, with frame, ly­ing on a bed ●● Fake Gre­cian col­umns and stat­ues ce­mented in situ ●● Sev­eral cases of knives hid­den in cub­bies in the floor ●● A flat screen Bang & Olufsen TV ●● A set of skis and full set of ski at­tire ●● An Amer­i­can fridge freezer (de­spite a work­ing in­te­grated fridge al­ready in the prop­erty) ●● Full-sized tread­mill in the re­cep­tion room ●● Case of Cham­pagne (which wasn’t do­nated to char­ity)

●● Ten­ants have been known to leave be­hind whole wardrobes of clothes
