    In that case raise, just a dispute via the protection scheme and you will have a very good case for getting your deposit back in full. The scheme arbitrators tend to come down like a ton of brick on sloppy unprofessional LLs who do not organise proper check-in inventories. Just contact the scheme and say you wish to dispute any deductions from your deposit.

    Can you clarify that this is an english standard assured shorthold tenancy.

    If so, has the landlord protected the deposit with one of the three schemes (if it started after 6th April 2007).

    Finally, and most pertinant, was there an inventory at the start of the tenancy, and if so, what does it say about the carpets.

    started a topic LL keeping some of deposit. Unfair!

    LL keeping some of deposit. Unfair!

    I had my final inspection today.
    The Letting agent and LL agreed I had improved the property greatly and everything is immaculate.

    Yet I have recieved a phone call telling me they are keeping £100 of my deposit to have the carpets cleaned.

    I have lived there for 3 years. The carpets were dirty and grubby when we moved in, the bedroom carpet was full of iron burns.

    I have had all the carpets cleaned before I left. The 2 bedroom carpets are immaculate, except the iron burns.

    Admittedly the stairs and walk through dining room do have slight marks from when we moved.

    Yet they want to clean all the carpets.

    The previous tenant lived there for 2years and had the same carpet then.

    Can I dispute this?

    Gov.uk says "You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent." A simplistic view I know but if you didn't market the property you don't officially need one.

  • S21 served expired EPC!
    by Worriednow
    Hi All
    Hope you can help. I served a S21 notice on my tenants giving them 6 months notice to leave. The actual tenancy expired in August 2021 but with the Covid rules i had to give 6 months notice which means they have to be out by November.

    The notice was served May this year but...

    Unfortunately I simply renewed the tenancy like I have been on a yearly basis. So when I last renewed with them I didn't give a EPC, we just renewed amicably. It's only since serving the S21 notice that I realised I should have given them the EPC when they renewed last year, except it had already expired...

    I have a large portfolio, I got tired of spending ours on the phone each week managing utilities between tenancies. I found a utility company that gave me a dedicated account team. I simply email the tenancy change and it gets sorted. However, there are a few challenges they are struggling to overcome,...

  • Reply to Dispute deposit based on damage that landlord didn't repair?
    by Hooper
    Sounds like a poor LL. But if the damage is not noted on check-in and is listed on check out, then rightly or wrongly the evidence is in LL favour, surely?

    If there was damage at check-in and it was not noted on the report, then it is the tenant's responsibility to have the report amended....
