Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

A client has a property at the top (3rd floor) of a building that houses a dental practice.
A lot of people use the main staircase over the other floors.
The dentists are saying that the tenants caused a lot of damage carrying a sofa up and down the stairs and that they are responsible for the redecoration. The tenants say no as there is a lot of traffic using the stairs and not all down to them so are refusing to pay anything – wear and tear.
Does the landlord have to pay the practice costs for redecoration because it is his tenants, if they won’t pay?
I feel they should share the cost between tenant and practice but the practice are refusing to pay too.
Any advice gratefully received.
