Can you offer any advice to Roberta whose tenants have put in a request to change carpets? Roberta wrote in to say:-
“This is something that has just arisen – a new tenant moved in earlier this week when I was away for a few days so I haven’t met her yet.
I have used a letting agent to find the tenant and do the initial tenancy paperwork.
The tenant has texted me to ask if she can ‘change the carpets in the two bedrooms’.
I’ve no idea how long this tenant is likely to be there as the agreement is for the usual 6 months and thereafter on a rolling monthly basis.
I don’t know what I’d do with the carpets that would be taken out as they won’t go in the loft as it’s full of insulation. They aren’t new carpets but in reasonable condition. Do I just throw them out and tell her that any new carpets would belong to me when she leaves if I give permission?
And what happens if she puts down cream carpets that are beyond cleaning when she leaves? Can I take it out of the deposit, with the added complication that the inventory has already been compiled by the letting agent?
Your thoughts would be helpful as always!
