i am a foreign student in the University, and i am currently renting a room in a house near the uni. I am hoping some of you guys can help me sort out my problem
For instance, i have given my landlord 750£ as a deposit, which of course i should get back after my contract has ended, if i have not damaged the property. The situation is just silly and funny, there is a broken toilet seat. Which was broken under a normal circumstance(you know), i guess it was just old or something, since i am not overweight or i wasnt dancing on it, if you catch my drift. The question is, should i just tell my landlord and risk him taking the deposit, or just buy a new seat? Since i have bought the new item, identical/better(can’t buy worse then the previous believe me) can he still tell me something? If i decide to tell him, does he take the deposit as a whole(all 750)? If not, who decides how much of it. I would really appreciate some genuine sense of simply wanting to help and guide me, since i am scared and worried..
