It’s an absolute Joke – Unfair and UNJUST LEGISLATION on the Private Sector. The same as the Deposit Protection Service – I had £2,000 of repairs to address burned / damaged carpets / Ripped wallpaper / cleaning / etc.
All the carpets were brand new as was the wallpaper. I put in a claim against the £495 Bond, it went to the DPS to decide, we had pictures of the rooms before and after, but they said because we didn’t have specific close up photos from before, of the damaged area they would only give us £110 for the cleaning !
Who is going to take a photo of every square foot of carpet? Whenever we rented a property it was refurbished clean and presentable, we seen a documentary where Bristol council offered a premises to a young mum with black and mould on the walls and offered her £150 towards decorating. If that had been a private landlord he would have been fined and if he did not correct it – lose his License!
It is An Absolute Travesty of Justice – A Real Mockery of Fair Proceedings. With HMO and Renting Rules, It got to a stage where I was afraid to sneeze or operate because I feared Prosecution / fines! We have recently sold 3 of our properties, we no longer want to endure this nonsense, we were Landlords for 30 years and offered Good, very reasonably priced accommodation to many.
We NEVER had a Fine or Prosecution. It is becoming clearly evident that the system is BIASED in favour of Council and Tenants – And For that Reason ” We’re OUT ”
