What costs for damage and repairs can I claim?Make Text Bigger
Another usual deposit nightmare story we all hear far too frequently. My tenant moves out early on a 12 month contract, leaving various items removed from the house, some damage and repairs are required. Also she failed to return the rooms she had re decorated back to the original state as per clause in our Tenancy Agreement.
Now the tenant is disputing the deposits return, which is not enough to cover all my outlay. I have provided quotations and invoices for the dilapidation, new carpet and to replace 2 electrical items removed. But now she is requesting that I supply receipts for proof of purchasing those items repaired or replaced and a receipt with full breakdown of costs of work, materials ect ect.
This has gone on for 5 months. Do I have to get all the work done items replaced first, before I can make the claim? As the total cost is over £1800, Oh the tenancy agreement has a Guarantor in it by the way.
