Hi hope someone can help us here. We did a check out with the agent and the property was left in exceptional condition …their words!
We now have the tenant saying that because there are two small white units on the wall from Virgin Media that the landlord wants removed and the whole wall repapering in two rooms. We had permission to have this installed. There is no damage whatsoever to the property.
There is also a mark on a unit which has been photographed by the landlord after we had checked out which is basically emulsion paint which was painted on top of satin paint by the landlord which has been rubbed and come off.
We have also been told that the landlord’s father entered the property whilst it was still ours and the heating had been switched on. We installed a wireless doorbell as the existing doorbell didn’t work. We have now been asked to repair this doorbell that we installed.
This all seems vindictive and petty and just looking for a way to get some of our deposit. The agent agrees with us but apparently the landlord has to give permission for our deposit to be returned even though the check out was done by the agent.
