i have moved out of a property, my landlord did not return my deposit, he is now trying to charge me £1,000’s for replacing tatty old carpets, painting, and various other things.
the previous tennents lived there 7 yrs, cats had made the carpets thread bare in places, I have lived there 3 yrs.
the property was not re decorated when I moved in, nor carpets replaced.
1. He did not protect my deposit, he is claiming as he lives on the property ( not in my self contained house) and the property is classified as an annex by the council, he did not need to.
I had an AST.
2. He is claiming every penny for re carpeting, painting, basically redecorating the whole house.
i do not have a moving in or moving out inventory check list. My landlord inspected the property 2 days after I moved out.
