Hello, we vacated our rental recently and attended the final inventory. The inventory clerk provided the report to the landlord but I didn’t hear anything. I waited a week and then asked him for an update. He said he had asked for an amendment to the report and that the inventory clerk was working on it. I waited another week and asked for an update. The inventory clerk was still working on it. That was four days ago. I find it strange that he can request an amendment without our being part of the discussion. We both had the opportunity to be at the final inventory with the clerk. His wife, who is co-landlord, was there. This doesn’t feel right. Should I be concerned? Is this normal?
A related question: the tenancy agreement stated that the landlord has 14 working days to inform me if they propose to make any deductions to our deposit. Today is day 15. Does that mean he’s in breach of the contract? Does it give me any leverage in dealing with him regarding the deposit?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
