Hi. Just after a bit of advice. 

Landlady is selling and Had end of tenancy inspection today after with her and agenvy after 4 years at property.

It got heated. House passed eventually, but I had a couple of bulky items which local council are picking up end of week. Which was on lawn on the inspection. Landlady said everything should be gone from property. I explained it was being picked up end of week.

I removed items to public footpath . Is that deemed as off property

they’re holding my deposit.to see if items get picked up. Surely if it’s off property they can’t do that
