Properties which are rented to people on benefits and who are unable to pay their rent do what is called a moonlight flight or flit.
They have no regard for the property, they leave the premises in a mess in their rush to vacate.
Any unwanted furniture they just leave, sometimes they even take the copper piping or gas boilers, destroying the premises in the process.
It is an ever growing problem in my area, with unkempt gardens which leaves the estate in a rundown state.
These absentee landlords just leave their agents as long as they are getting paid.
Out of sight out of mind
