John Leaver is at his detached three-bedroom property in Caerleon, South Wales. All fixtures and fittings are in the garage.

The lodgers are out. Says he. “We agreed a rent of £650 a month. The rent was paid into my bank account on time and there were no reports of any problems.”

The looks on the front doors have been changed. So Mr Leaver gets a ladder and climbs in through a skylight. “I opened a skylight and got inside. It was pitch black. There was a young Chinese-looking guy standing right in front of me on the landing. I was frightened, and he looked petrified.”

The man leaves. Mr Leaver discovers an indoor field of cannabis plants. The value of the garden is placed at £100,000.

Says she Mr Leaver: “It has made me wary of the sort of tenant I will rent my houses out to.”

Indeed, in this time of credit crunch and flaccid property price rises, landlords are advised to ensure their tenants can pay.

The dungeon at Anorak Towers is avalailable for rent to any green campaigners who can pay…
