We recently vacated our rental property after 3.5years. The place was rented since 2002, I moved in Aug 2012.
We lived in a share house and had 5 tenants over the 3.5 years I was there.
When I moved in the house is from the 1960s & was in ok condition. However, the carpets were severly stained, the kitchen counter had melted, some of the light fittings didnt work & there was a hole in a door.
We requested an inventory to ensure that everything was in order when we left the premesis. The inventory was from 2002 ie 14years old.
Can someone please inform me of what is reasonable wear & tear on a property in regards to the kitchen counter, carpets, door & light fittings.
The kitchen has other holes & is falling apart from poor workmanship.
How can we contest any of this considering the previous inventory is 14years old.
Thanks for your time, please ask if you want any more information.
