What percentage can you charge tenants for damages?Make Text Bigger
I have had a tenant living in one of my properties for the last 18 months. The tenant has now vacated without giving the notice period required so will be charged the notice period rent as stated in the AST.
The tenant has taken the carpet in the hall and underlay and has completely destroyed the laminate flooring in the living room. Some of the kitchen cupboard doors have been ripped off and damaged and will need to be replaced. The whole house will need to be repainted as there are dirty marks and pen marks in almost in every room.
The carpets and laminate flooring were brand new before the tenant moved in and the whole house had just been repainted. In this situation when this happens I don’t usually charge the full cost to replace the carpets and Laminate flooring or the full cost to repaint the house again as I know you have to take into account wear and tear.
However does anybody no the percentage that you can charge to replace the carpets, flooring and repainting of the house ?
