the tenant is 100% responsible for their behaviour.

tenant selection is a shared responsibility, landlord and agent, if there is an agent.

agree about having insurance and following processes to mitigate any losses from tenancies.

know the rules and follow them.
" the agent did say 'we can give them a try'" - This statement by you would indicate that both you and the agent knew there was a risk. By the nature of the statement it would also indicate that he put the question to the owner and the owner had the final say.

Therefore who is to blame if you have to blame someone????

or maybe the tenant who signed a lease stating they have a responsibility!

Get over it and move on.
