I have recently moved out of a property. The landlord has been ignoring the agents emails for a month. He has just come back to them. The property was well looked after and left in immaculate condition (as stated in the independent inventory). However there was a small tear in the (cheap) lino in the kitchen when removing the washing machine. The tear is tiny (as demonstrated in the photos). However the landlord has got a quote for repair/replacement for £750!!!!
I dont think I should pay this extortionate cost of replacement. I believe that due to the size of the tear this icould be considered fair wear and tear. If I can’t consider fair wear and tear, can I demand my own independent quote and pay for the repairs as I have a friend that is a carpet fitter that will do the whole job for £150.
Many thanks in advance!
