Hello all, I need a bit of advice on how best to get my vacated tenants to pay for a slightly cracked basin, stained mattress and dirty walls which I think are all beyond anybody’s reasonable expectation of fair wear and tear. They were good tenants and were in the property for three years and only moved out very very recently.
I’m going to get quotes from a workman and a cleaner to calculate the costs of putting things right but there is no real urgency from my side as another tenant was happy to move in before I get the work done. I do realise that I only have 14 days to deal with the return of the deposit though.
Since it’s the first time I’ve had deal with a deposit refund I’d like to ask whether a quote for now is sufficient enough to get tenants to agree to the deduction from the damage deposit.
I’d really appreciate experienced landlord’s advice.
