    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.


            Send LBA then sue him, MCoL..

            Good luck!

              Can anybody help please. I own a flat that is fully managed by a letting agency I’ve dealt with for 12 years. I received a letter from a debt collection agency asking me to ring them. I phoned them today and have found out there is an outstanding bill (which has been sold to the debt collection agency)...

              This happened to me once. The T put the electric bill in my name. When she left I got a high bill. I had taken the readings when she left and told the supplier what she had done and I would pay my share from the date T left and the reading on that day. In the end they accepted this.

            • Painted without permission
              So I rent from a housing association and on their website it says we can paint, etc whenever we want. So ive painted the joint living room kitchen, and part of the hallway. I then spoke to a neighbour who moved in the same time as me and said i was painting, to which she said didnt think we could paint...

            • Help with bad landlord
              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...

              The landlord cannot increase the rent without your friends agreement so at this stage you can just ignore the supposed rent increase. It only exists inside the landlords head! I wouldn't bother explaining to the landlord that she has to use a section 13 to increase the rent. You are not the landlords...

            • who is responsible for the broken fridge/freezer
              I moved in a flat last Tuesday. I found the fridge is not cool enough but the freezer works well. However, on Saturday the fridge/freezer didn't work. Foods in freezer began to thaw. The shelf in freezer is much warmer than the other part.

              I contacted with the agency and they said I should...

              This happened to my Mum's fridge freezer too. If you've got the kind of FF where the air is fanned up from the freezer to the fridge you mustn't overstuff the freezer or the cold air won't be able to get up the 'chimney' to the fridge....

            • Change of named tenant
              We have been renting out our 3 bedroom house to the same tenants for 2 years. Up to this point the household consisted of a male, his girlfriend and the girlfriends brother and they have been good tenants. This week we learned that the girlfriend has moved out and the man wants to add his new girlfriend...

              Also, the only safe way of changing a named tenant is to surrender the existing tenancy and start a new one.
