I rented out my house just over 5 months ago to a Tenant who actually begged me to rent to her since her family lives on same street. I agreed on compassionate grounds since she was a single mother with 3 children. Got her to pay deposit after she and her guarantor failed credit check.
I had actually finished refreshing the house, newly decorated, new carpets in all bedrooms, new fence, newly laid turf in the garden, new radiators, new boiler.
First, she called a month ago, she’s moving out wanting to end a 6 month AST at the 5 month.
I quickly sent someone over to the house just to check if all was OK with the property, then a got an initial shock. She had changed the laminate flooring but without the trims.
Then on move out day, house was not cleaned, carpets not washed, front door does not lock any more (broken door lock mechanism), garden not mowed at all, (very bushy), laminate flooring missing the trims, cigarette ash all over the carpets, cigarette stubs in the sinks and toilets, one radiator broken and no longer works, the garden gate bolt and latch has been removed leaving it exposed to anyone to walk through even though the padlock is still there (looks like someone broke it to open the door).
My question is from all the above what should she pay for from her deposit as I need to send a bill of the works?
