My tenancy in my house ended in October 2013 when my housemate left. I signed a new tenancy agreement with my new housemate for 6 months in the same house, which has just come to its end. So i didnt actually move out.
As there was no moving out in October, the landlord did an interim inspection and we agreed a charge of £50 towards cleaning as deductions from my deposit.
This wasnt actually deducted but deferred for convenience until the end of this tenancy.
This £50 was a compromise because there was no opportunity to do a proper inspection or a professional clean.
Now the final inspection has taken place of the new tenancy, the landlord is demanding another £50 towards cleaning, relating to the old tenancy, saying it was too difficult to have judged accurately at the time as i didnt move out.
The current housemate will not pay anything as it was not professional cleaned at the start of her / the latest tenancy and we have proof that the condition of the house is no different / better than when she moved in.
In addition, there were some blinds in storage that belonged to the landlord, there were no problems at the inspection, but then the landlord says that when they got the blinds out of the cupboard after we left, they say it was broken and are demanding payment. It had been handled by cleaners and the landlord since then, is this also right?
I feel like i am being taken advantage of here, please can anyone offer any advice? do i have a case to argue this, or do i need to accept it?
