Hi there everyone, i need some advice xx
Just moved out of a house that i have been renting for just over 4 years. I have had monthly checks every three months and never had any problems. I have just moved out and now the Landlord is complaining. He says that he wants all the carpets cleaned and the walls repainted even though in my third year of renting the ceilings in the front room and dining room fell down creating dust and muck that spread through the house. I had to live like that for a month whilst the ceilings were fixed and he never offered any alternative accomodation.
The letting agents are saying that my inventory is useless as it only indicates OK for things like carpets and walls, woodwork etc (they say the guy who did it, who has left the company didnt give enough detail so they cant go by it) eve though i paid an administarion fee to ahve it done.
He says that the shed needs fixing (this is not on the inventory) as some of the felt blew away in the winds (We collected the shed and erected it for him as he was ill at the time) in our own time and at our own expense without even a thankyou.
They said the cooker needed cleaning, which we have since steam cleaned. and now hes holding onto our desposit for decorating and new carpets.
My deposit is with the DPS but is it worth the hassle and do the DPS always go with the Land Lord?
PLEASE HELP WITH ADVICE
