Repair or Replacement

Hi Everyone,

I have strated my tenancy at the mid week of April to a new house with my landlord.A tiny portion of the carpet is slighlty burnt.I have already asked the carpet specialised profeesionals who told me that this can be easily repaired.I have told the same to the Landlord and informed him that I will make the full payment for this.

But the ladlord is not ready for making the repair as he demands a full replacement of the carpet for the tiny damage which is seems to be unfair for me as the carpet is extremely in good condition as the damage is baraely visible.

Please provide a way around to sort out this issue.Looking for a help from you.

Hi Animesh,
I would arrange and pay for the repair myself.
If it is a good repair, your landlord will have to justify any deductions when you check-out and he is not permitted to claim for a new carpet.
If you do not agree with his deductions you can then appeal to the scheme that your deposit is protected with.
