I moved out of a property almost 3 years ago and hjave just recieved an email from the lettings management company claiming i owe them 200 pounds for an inventory check out and that they are starting debt recivery proceedings!
They have not provided any supportying invoice and documentation – it was so long ago that i have no records!
When we moved into the property it was managed by a different company and no formal inevtory was provided – they just left a list of items in the flat which we found when we moved in. We responded with our comments and emailed to the LL. Part-way through our tenancy, the management company was changed.
When we moved out, we had to deal with the Landlord directly to agree there were no charges – as this company were not involved.
A check-out inventory was carried out but we were never invoiced and received our deposit back in full.
So, can they invoice 3 years later?
If they did not conduct a moving in inventory, can they charge for a moving out inventory?
Thank you for any advice.
