is being sued for almost £200,000 following claims that he wrecked his former bachelor pad.
Jeff and Dawn Grant, who own the £2million five-bed mansion, allege that he owes them £68,000 in rent.
And their solicitors claim the West Ham striker, 24, left drink stains on chairs and on the ceiling, scratches on an antique table and caused the swimming pool to be overrun with potentially toxic algae.
Carroll, who earns £100,000 a week, is believed to have moved all the furniture – including treadmills, sofas and a grandfather clock – into a secret lock-up. But the Grants claim it is theirs.
Solicitors for the couple also claim audio visual kit is missing from the mansion, which is thought to have had £100,000 wiped off its value.
Carroll is being chased for £75,000 for the “unlawful removal of furniture” and £48,000 for the “clean-up and repair operation”.
Including the rent, that makes £191,000.
Manleys Solicitors, for the Grants, said: “The property was returned to them in an extremely poor condition and, regrettably, they’ve had to issue legal proceedings.”
Carroll’s solicitors Glinert Davis did not comment last night but it is believed he is fighting the claims.
It is understood the star is demanding his £15,000 deposit but it is being held back by the Grants.
Carroll was tied into a two-year tenancy on the house in Blundellsands, Liverpool, which would have ended on May 8.
But payments are alleged to have stopped last autumn when he moved from Liverpool to West Ham.
