Tenant did not pay last month rent and moved out, damages are significant

By admin

My tenant did not pay the last months rent.  This would be fine, but not having a security deposit I am out of pocket for repairs which include:  wall damage, broken sink and door, basic cleaning.  This person is a goverment worker and is relocating in Europe for the job.  To make this worse she owed $600. in back pay that was "in the mail".  I have emailed and reminded her of the money owed.  She has payed on time by direct deposit for two years, and I have only one problem that required that she get rid of the dog that had several complaints made about it.  How can I persue this matter?
Obviously a new landlord, any advice?
