I moved out of my rented property a week ago, there was some damage to a wall where my sofa gouged a hole, which I informed the landlord about, and this was priced up for (extortionately) repair.
Nearly a week on, she is now witholding my deposit as the cooker needed ‘profesionally’ cleaning, it wasn’t her cooker, and was filthy when I moved in four years ago, and now is claiming a carpet was ‘filthy’ after I had all of them cleaned the day of the final inspection.
There was NO inventory, or hand over from the previous tenant, and the house needed a good couple of days of cleaning when I moved in. There was NO inventory on the final inspection, no form other than her hand written notes. Can additional costs after I’ve moved out, and after the final inspection be legally deducted once my responsibilty ends, on the day of checkout and final inspection?
