Hello everyone! I am living in rented accomodation and I will be leaving in a few months (cant wait). Anyway, the property is a bit rubbish (was when I moved in). I am wondering if spills on carpets will count as wear and tear? My bedroom carpet has a few stains (carpet was described in the inventory as showing a few signs of wear and tear). Am I liable for the stains? The carpet wasnt great when I moved in 3 years ago and so the general condition of it has got worse.
Also, the freezer drawers (which arent referred to in the inventory) are broke. One of the pull down drawers in freezer snapped quite badly. Its an inbuilt freezer and is really old (as is the whole kitchen). Will they check this and will I be liable for it even though its not mentioned in inventory?
There is a few other bits and pieces that are in not "perfect" condition such as when I moved in but to what extent are these counted? Its generally in good condition, but as landlord lazy and this place not great its not in good condition. The sink is VERY worn and stained, but inventory did say "bit of wear and tear". Now its a lot and its stained. Its a horrible sink, its white and grey speckled and the surface appears to have disappeared a bit and stains are now worn into the sink...no matter how much I scrub it. My property unfurnished.
ALSO I have a chip in the worktop when the washing machine was replaced where the man banged it into the worktop. I only seen it a few weeks ago. I am worried they will charge me for this too.
Thanks everyone in advance!
