Landlord is trying to deduct monies from deposit quoting repairs on somethings that I think fall under wear and tear or originally in bad condition at start of tenancy.

The invetory clerk had cleverly avoided pics of the part of area that was in bad condition and just mentioned in unsed condition in the writeup at the start of the tenancy.

But next day I had taken the pics of it and shared them with landlord and the clerk to include them in the report which was ignored ( I have email records of the same with pics attached in the email).

Over the stay 2 yearss that part of area that was in bad condition, got deteriorated. Now landlord trying to push the repair expenses on to me by deducting it from deposit. I will definitely dispute this to get my monies back. Do I stand a chance getting all my money back ? I think so.

Also there was a damage due to rusting of screws. Doesn’t that fall under wear and tear ?

How I wish this world had more honest people.
