    rough cost of repairing a basin

    Tenants have cracked a basin (it was new when they moved in). The damages outweigh the deposit I have. I got a quote of £200 for a new sink, including labour and disposal of old sink). They have asked how much to just repair it. Can anyone give me a rough idea? Thanks very much.

    sorry, should have said overall damages outweigh deposit, so cost to repair is just an academic exercise really

      How long have they been there? There is wear 'n tear to be allowed for.

      So if they moved in say 30 years ago I'd forget about it: If they moved in last week I'd ignore the problem until they leave, which could be in a year or 30 years time.

      Unless there is a hygiene issue with it or safety concern.

      You took less than £200 as a deposit for a home?? (Entirely legal - no need to take a deposit at all). Wow, what was the rent?
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        They moved in last year and have just moved out. Sorry, I meant the overall damages (basin just one thing) come to more than the overall deposit will (and I'm not going to pursue costs beyond the deposit amount). I can just see them contesting everything - no matter what the photographic/written evidence says.

          Never heard of anybody repairing a cracked basin.

            There are plenty of places that will give a quote - the only figure I've seen (given in a review) was around £160.

              I assume T caused the basin damage, so charge the T for replacing it less estimate for FW&T for lost years of life expectancy since provided new. Thus the Deposit remains intact for other T damage discovered. less FW&T, or combine and use Deposit scheme ADR

                I wouldn't repair it. The cost obviously depends on the basin, anything from £30 up. As long you get a similar one fitting should be straightforward so I would think £200 was a bit steep. I doubt you'd need to pay for disposal, it should fit in your wheelie bin.
