Tenant with Alzheimers

Comments

We have had a tenant in our flat who we believe has Alzheimers. The rent he pays has been taken up in running around after him constantly, changing locks, keys, repairing electrical sockets, light fittings etc. We do not live on the premises but have been called out several times a day to attend to him. It got to the stage where he was phoning 25/30 times a day and we were unable to get on with our own lives, disrupting our children's lives, outings and resulting in cancellation of our holidays. he is now in hospital and his departure from our flat is imminent but we are left facing having to throw out all the contents of the flat, renewing carpets, blinds, kitchen units, furniture and at a minimum the cost will be 3000. We would have been financially and emotionally better off if we had not let the flat and just poured 200 a week down the drain! We have heard that we may be entitled to some insurance payout under a Mental Health Act and would be grateful for any advice!!!
