  1. I can only come to the conclusion that no one is able to answer my question and therefore will no longer follow this thread. I khave a vey good understanding of the legal aspects of this situation and was hoping that someone would be able to clarify the point I was uncertain about. She has no foundation for an excessive claim, end of story. Therefore, if she filed for such an amount, she has 2 changes; zero and null. king12345: not in this world Just wish someone would have stated that they do not know and refrained from the Gooble-de-gook such those from king12345.
  2. Where will she get a quote for £3200 for costs that she did not suffered and where there is no damage???
  3. You refer to schedule of the Landlady, she has a serious problem with it. Yes there are things which we will have to pay compensation for and these things are reflected in our negotiations with the agency and we came to an amount both we and the agency agreed upon and the costs was what the agency suggested. Although she can be awarded more, there are other points where she will get less because we made a number of token offers. The problem for her is that although she can probably proof that we breached some aspects of the tenancy agreement, she provided zero evidence on ho she calc
  4. Thanks mariner for you advice. We do intend to make a full and final settlement offer, basically along the lines of what we negotiated with the letting agency. My main question before I respond to her is regarding the costs been awarded by the court. I will use an example to demonstrate what I am asking about. Example: Scenario 1: • Landlady claim £8000 (Filing fee is £415 and Hearing fee is £335) • We offer £500 • They reject the £500 and it go to court • Judge awards the Landlady the £500 • What will happen to the court fees, who will pay what? Scenario 2
  5. I attached the claim schedule (claim 3.pdf) and highlighted the most outrageous points. I also attached a response to the various statements in the letter of claim I wrote before(events 2.pdf). The last 2 attachments is the offer we made before having the negotiations with the letting agency (offer.pdf), as well as the negotiated result we and the lettings agency arrived at (Negotiated Offer.pdf).

  6. When I received her claim there was an important question which I was looking for clarity (I will raise that question here later). I spoke to someone at a law firm and they offer that a trainee (at a substantial lower cost) will give me an overview of the situation and draft me a response. I accepted that offer but it will be costly to continue using their service (even at the reduced rate), therefor I will not use their services further. At the end of the tenancy I had a long negotiation with the lettings agency and I believe the amount of around £430 which we offered would cover all cos
  7. After checking out of a property about 9 months ago (after a 2 year and 5 month tenancy) we received a letter of claim from the landlady. We negotiated through the Agents and came to an amount which we both agree to be a fair deduction from the deposit. (Although we believe we were very generous). The Landlady refused any offer and said that she want to take this to court, and after 9 months send her letter of demand. She refused any input from a mediator like the TDS and did not even received our responses to the agent about a number of the issues on the list of claims. Therefore h
