Hi,

 

I moved out of a property over 2 weeks ago and after trying for some time to get hold of my landlord I did eventually get an amount out of him last night as to what he proposed to deduct form my deposit.

 

1. A £50 charge for repainting a "dirty" wall, which he has now reduced to £25 as he got his workmen to fix it he said. This wall was covered in damp and mould; something which I have been trying to ask him to sort out for over 2 years.

 

2. £295 to replace carpets in the 2 bedrooms, one has an iron burn and the other a paint mark. These carpets were nowhere near new when I moved in and are not in very good condition at all.

 

I have refused to pay for the dirty wall, however with the carpets I'm not sure what to do. I asked him the age of the carpets and got the resopnse "you want to know the condition of the carpets, I advise you to look to your inventory". I just have and nowhere is the condition of the carpets mentioned except to say 'bedroom, floor covering: carpet' and that is it. What should I do, I offered to pay half based on the age of the carpets which he rejected.

 

No check out was ever done although my tenancy agreement states it should of been and I was to be present, and he has implied that if I do kick up a fuss he will "do a full check out report" so in other words find ways to keep the whole £485.

 

If I go to TDS as I damaged the carpet will I have a leg to stand on?

 

Many thanks

 

Emma
