    Seems a strange one. They have had the benefit of the use in the property and the added value of the bathroom suit was probably disregarded.

    If it were a commercial property the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927 would state that the tenant were allowed compensation to the lesser of the increased value on the market value of the property or the reasonable costs for carrying out the work less fair wear and tear.

    What does the agreement state about situations like this?

    I think its a simple case of having a deal. Plainly there is cost involved in them removing the items, so it has to be in both parties interests to resolve this amicably.

    Reimburse them their costs. That is what I guess they want.

    JUst to make it clear, it was my father(LL) who installed the bath and the shower and took out the old bath and shower and took then to the dump.

    The tenants are saying he took it out and installed their bath and shower which he did but thought it would be left in at the end of the tenancy nothing was ever written down. The tenants are say they are just taking what legally theirs.

    The LL can require Ts to reinstate bathroom to its original state at Ts expense, unless there is written confirmation of the 50:50 agreement IMO. This would include bath of similar quality.

    Bathroom equipment

    Right looking for some advice as my father and I are both Landlords and have different properties we are renting out.
    This is asked on behalf of my father:

    My father (Landlord) has tenants for one of his properties, they asked 2 years ago weather or not they could get a shower and a new bath for them to use in the rented property.
    My father agreed and both side agreed to paid 50/50, well the agreement was the tenats would buy the shower and the bath and my father would pay for installing the shower and bath by professional which came to about 50/50 for both parties.
    All went well until they came to the end of their tenancy and now want to take the bath and shower units with them. We have said this is part of the property and will not be moved from the property.

    They are claiming it is their property and they have proof with invoices etc from the company they brought it from.

    We do we stand? is it their property?
