    Wear & Tear - to replace or not to replace?

    Hi. I recently moved out of my flat. When I moved in the stainless sink was new, and after a year when I moved out it had superficial scratches on the bottom of the bowl, due to (what I thought would be considered) wear and tear.

    After checkout the landlord claims he had to replace the sink because of these scratches, which I find completely incredible as there was no reason to do this. To be fair he did supply a bill. To confirm, the sink was otherwise completely fine and entirely operational (ie. there was no damage to the taps, no dents, no holes, no damage to external pipes... nothing). The damage, if you can call it that, was superficial. It was also beautifully clean!

    I intend to pursue this through the small claims court if necessary. If it did come to court, what do you reckon... would I have a case? And are there any guidelines for when fittings can legitimately be replaced and when it's just a case of making an appropriate deduction from the deposit?

    Thanks folks!
