Andy Carroll - Trouble With The Landlord

Recommended Posts

West Ham star Andy Carroll being sued for £200,000 by landlords who claim he trashed their £2m luxury mansion

The striker, 24, 'left drink stains on chairs and ceilings, and left the pool infested with algae'

He also allegedly damaged the barbecue, sun lounger and air hockey table

Landlords claim he owes them £68,000 in unpaid rent for the five bed house

...Court papers served this week revealed he is being sued for £75,000 for the 'unlawful removal of furniture' and £48,000 for the 'clean-up and repair operation'.

Including the rent, that's a total of £191,000.

The house in the story above looks just about identical to this one (on the left) that was being marketed for sale at £3.6m in 2009. Guess they decided to rent it out instead.

2009/2010 = Guide Price £3.3m (old RM listing). http://www.rightmove...y-25703024.html

"Scumbag Letting Agents Encourage Already-Rich Rentier Filth to Rip Off Paying Customers..."

Nothing to see here. Move on.

But make sure you don't go near a company sounding like "Pouthern Sroperty Management," or you'll get the same treatment.

Utter c**ts. The lot of them. The sooner an act is passed to put them out of business - or severely rein them all in - the better.

Surely this is chicken feed for Mr Carroll? The total is less than 200 grand. That's probably less than a month's wages after tax, and that's assuming he's silly enough not to have structured his arrangements in a more ...ahem...efficient manner.

There was a story + pics of Carroll handing a London 'beggar' £50 the other day. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2387634/Andy-Carroll-gives-50-beggar-Soho-West-Ham-striker-continues-injury-comeback.html

Here is a claim for nearly £200,000. It's not about whether he can afford it to pay the claim. Don't know the full facts, but I think he should pay what he owes, and challenge anything he thinks is speculative in the claim. Or set other things right if can return the furniture.

Landlords should accept some element of wear and tear. £15K deposit according the the article. Guess that could be 2 months rent? £68,000 claimed as rent unpaid according to the article. Some commercial risks being a landlord. I guess the solicitors will come to some settlement.
