    I'm thinking of asking them to leave it as it would be cheaper than getting the holes filled, the wallpaper replaced and painted. The problem might be that the next tenants would want a different sized bracket.

    It's all academic really, as I'll be selling this particular property when these tenants leave in a few years time (their choice as they're saving up to buy). I'm only selling due to EPC regs (if they come in) as it would be far too expensive to externally insulate the property and I'd never recoup the expenditure.

      Why not ask the tenant to supply materials and fit them yourself, for a proper job?

        gnvqsos you have a touching faith in my DIY abilities. Although I would consider stripping all the lining paper myself, and getting a plasterer to re plaster. I hate lining paper and when I gets damp it is a hidey place for mould.

          Well do not let damp properties. Ventilate rooms.

            Sure. There are windows, a vented tumble dryer, a Karcher and air extractor fan in the bathroom etc. But if tenants drape wet towels in radiators as is their wont, it creates damp. I now leave a laminated instruction sheet re avoiding damp in the property, let’s see if it works.
