Hello everyone, My previous tenants who left my flat on 9th January have admitted on email to smoking in the flat. This is in breach of their AST and they are aware of this.
What are my rights here?
Am I able to deduct the cost of re-decorating and replacing a smoke ruined sofa from their deposit?
Even though they have admitted smoking, they are not accepting that the flat needs redecorating.
The deposit is with the DPS.
If I go to dispute, am I right in saying they do not have a leg to stand on?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
