    Why did you rent the property for only 15 days?

      He's talking about 'long term' damage that is unlikely to have been caused in just 15 days.

      If you had ripped his shower off the wall, damaged the shower cubicle, broken the table, etc. then he would have a claim against you.
      But not for what you are telling us.

        Actually we know nothing. Just a vague, imprecise unclear snippet of what he purportedly did. OP needs to test his case in court.

          I was moving home. I found that more convenient than staying with a friend. Another question was why 400 pounds. I honestly thought that it was normal. This is in London.

              Hello, I am looking for advice regarding a tenant who initially told me in December that he had been in hospital for 2 weeks for an operation on his nose and would not be able to pay his rent until January 2017 saying he will have to stay in hospital longer another 2 weeks at their request and as a...

              Hello all, I have phoned the police regarding the room but they are saying it is a civil matter if the tenant occupies the room. They said I could change the locks but they just advised both me and my tenants to phone them if there are any more incidents. My tenants are not going to do this again as...

              I hope I’m ok to ask a question as a tenant here! I have lived in a rented property for almost ten years. It’s rented from a large housing association at market rate rent on an assured shorthold tenancy. Within the rent, we pay a service charge of about £30 a month for maintenance of landscaping,...

              HA's do have to carry out GSC's, although some don't seem to think so and subsequently get into trouble for not doing them:

              Berlingogirl
              Just a quick question - I made a MCOL, which has gone to meditation due to T's request. If the T does not respond to the mediator to agree the date within the given time does the claim go to an actual court or can I request judgment via MCOL?...

              Hello, this is my first post.

              I am about send a notice to quit to my tenants, they have been there for over 3 years. The tenancy began on the 27th day of the month. My question is, does it have to end on the 27th or can it end on any day of the month, say the 2nd?

              Thanks...

              I have a friend who has rented a property on an assured shorthold tenancy for 3 years now. The tenancy has long expired and so has automatically converted into a periodic tenancy.

              Recently following an inspection the boiler in the property was condemned and switched off as a result. She...

              She seems to have her own ideas of how the law works, else she is trying to convince you that's how the law works.

              You have told her she can't just write that she is putting it up without your friends agreement and your friend doesn't have to leave if she doesn't pay the increase. No need...
