  • Signed Inventory

    I have just left a rented house. I had rented the accomadation for 6 years. I had an inventery inspection when I first moved in and had one when I moved out. The Company working on behalf of the landlord, are still holding my deposit which I have chased. There are bits that I will have to pay for on the inventry, which I have no issue with. However, I recieved an e-mail from the Company yesterday, 1 month and 3 days after the inventry had been signed off to say that the Landlord had visited the premises and had found that the back door had been broken and that I would have to pay for the repair to be made. Have I got any legal right to say no to this cost, on the inventry there was no issue found, (which took 4 hours to complete) or would I have to pay??? It seems to me that this should of been picked up on at the inventry, I was not aware the door was broken and in 1 month a lot can happen???? Please advise.

    If your deposit is protected in a scheme you could certainly dispute this with the scheme on the basis that the landlords report does NOT reflect the condition of the property at the end of the tenancy. If no protection, you could sue but there is more risk with that option.

      I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

      You are also aware you are now liable to pay her a penalty of up three times the deposit value?.

      My experience of a drug addict is that they will leave with a financial offering.

      Strike a deal taking into account your likely penalty and eviction costs and offer her an amount...

    • Tips for making a good impression when meeting a landlord
      Our potential new landlady has 'approved us in principle' but wants to meet us at the house as the final part in the referencing process. Beside the obvious such as look smart, tidy and professional and warn the kids to behave, any particular tips for making sure this last hurdle goes smoothly?

      Some of the above comments are crazy!. If they have aleady done their referencing and credit checks then they likely just want to meet you.

      As someone said above, they are trusting you with their very valuable asset.

      As a landlord I couldn't care less what clothes someone...

    • Landlord Address

      Tenancy finished a couple of months ago. The landlord withheld part of the deposit for a variety of reasons. As the tenant, I disputed those deductions as incorrect - they contradict the Checkout Report which was completed by an agent of the Landlord but that's besides the point....

      As the tenancy has finished you have no right to his address from agent.

      Have you spent £3 with land registry to get deeds of property & see who is listed as owner & what address?? (Landlord may not be owner... legal, no very uncommon...)
