    Deposit - How to claim for my time?

    Dear All

    My tenant was evicted recently and left the house in quite a state. I have a thorough 'Inventory and Inspection List' so it's easy to prove the damage.

    I need to prove to the DPS what the costs are in rectifying the problems which is easy to do with receipts. However what about the hours I have spent in cleaning and repairing the house?

    Can I put a figure down for the hours of hard work that I put in and what sort of figure is acceptable?

    Thanks
    Phil

    I think the allowable rate by the courts is about £9.25 per hour for your own time. It was posted somewhere else on this forum many months ago.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        Thank you for your answers. I will send details to the DPS and let you know the response if any.

        With kind regards

          Please do - I'm sure plenty of people - myself included - would be interested in knowing what happens. Presumably your tenant will be disputing the amount charged, or there wouldn't be an issue?
