Hi I’ve just ended a tenancy and my landlord is wanting £100 from my deposit
1. To clean the cooker
2. For a 2p piece size of plaster from the ceiling as I had to get her dated fire alarm replaced.
I have an email trail which between me and the letting agency regarding both issues, to which the landlord was happy for me to go back and sort.
I agreed immediately (I actually felt bad about it as she was a nice land lady)
I have since been emailing the agency to arrange a date.
However, it appears the landlady has paid for both the cooker clean and the ceiling which she claims to be of the sum of £100. I have requested the receipts but nothing has materialised
To avoid a dispute I have reminded the landlady of the shower I had to replace as she was in Australia and I have never been refunded for – I would have felt that a fair exchange. However it appears not as the DPS refund is still £100 less of the deposit.
I have declined this purely on my co-operation to rectify her issue and secondly she has neither given me fair time to address her complaint nor has she provided me with receipt – for all I know she has left it how it was. I did clean it but obviously not to her standard
I’m just wondering with what I’ve told you, do I have any rights here? I feel very unfairly treated especially as I made so many improvements to the property – she has not asked me to remove or rectify them!
