Tenancy Deposits

0 Thanks

Hello, I had a tenant moving out 2 weeks ago and not paying the bills. The tenant is not a UK resident and is now overseas. Not responding to my e-mails. I have initiated the deposit repayment claiming my part, but the tenant is not responding to it either.

According to DPS I would have to issue "Statutory Declaration at least 14 calendar days after the tenancy has ended." Too late now. Which route shall I go now? I'm not in UK now and will be back in June. Is there any harm if I delay it more? Many thanks
