    You have a claim for the loss in value of the parquet floor beyond fair wear and tear that occurred during the tenancy.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        You could try claiming for rent in lieu of notice but be careful if you dont have evidence of abandonment. If you agreed to end his tenancy when he left then obviously that would be different

              Can u stop ADR? Or refuse it's judgement? I think i should have gone to court online (mcol?) Might have been best way to keep deposit as he broke contract,not sure ADR covers me for getting back costs due to his breaking contract and sub letting

                Court wont award you anything for that either. Time to move on and suggest you invest in some landlord training. Its a jungle out there!

                  Thnx chaps

                  Out of curiosity how would training have helped? I've run my own letting agency since '89
                  I could not have known he intended to sublet,he passed all ref checks,earnt £200k!
                  Once we found out he was subletting we found new tenant and he left
                  I took timed and dated photos on move in and move out
                  Please enlighten me,i need to know for future lets

                    It would have:
                    a) Helped you understand the best process to end the tenancy (deed of surrender).
                    b) Avoided hoping to claim for loss of revenue against a deposit (rather than focussing on the actual damage compensation claim).

                    But it wouldn't have helped with a tenant who decides to sub-contract against your wishes and tenancy agreement.

                        Not a word from dPS,three weeks after last date for submitting evidence
                        They haven't answered my query as to wether it was allowed being a day late,but within seven days of me receiving tenants submission from them

                              Educate us as to the adjudicators logic please
                              - so we can learn
                              - so we can decide whether to take deposits at all, or simply charge higher rents and rely on the courts to resolve problems

                                Out of interest, what evidence did he provide for his £200k income?

                                  Utility companies are not allowed to cut people off in case it causes undue hardship.

                                  When a tenant moves into a property that become liable for the usage on a deemed contract even if they don’t open an account. I would suggest that the occupants are liable for the usage.

                                  Hi all,

                                  I own and rent out the ground floor flat of a building that has one other flat upstairs.

                                  It has come to light, that the original owner of the upstairs flat had installed a third "landlord's" meter to provide light for the single light in the hallway downstairs....

                                  I don't really understand how that works.
                                  Are you and the "other landlord" landlord leaseholders and, together, the freeholder?
                                  Why is the "other landlord" not the owner of upstairs and you the owner of downstairs?

                                  Some are suggesting that because myself and the other owner are now the landlord's, we inherit that meter even though when we bought our properties we were never made aware of it or, in my case, consulted before it was installed. I don't understand why they didn't just stop supplying power after 3 months...

                                  you aren't liable. For the sake of one bulb just spur off your flat with a maintained bulkhead, more cost effective than a landlords account. A manintained common parts light is one with a rechargeable battery which will come on in a power failure. If however you let your flat to a council or housing...

                                  Well Scottish Power is saying someone has to pay and they suggesting that's the current landlords which is me and the other flat owner. They absolutely won't make any changes like removing it, switching supply off or anything because our names weren't on the original account before it was closed. It...

                                  Utility contracts are created on a deemed use basis.
                                  I can't imagine anyone can be liable unless they own the meter - so, I imagine, the first time power was used after the account had closed, the meter owner became liable.

                                  I've never understood how you can "use" a standing...

                                  The date on an order should be the date it were made, even if it take the courts months to type up and send to the parties. That said, I wouldn't necessarily be surpised if stats goes with the date they are eventually send to parties.

                                  I have been a tenant in England for four years. Everything was fine on both my part and the landlords part until earlier this year. My landlord has always had a habit of letting himself in, either into the house itself or the garden,with no notice. By March,I’d had enough and sent a letter,...
