  • Reply to Quick question about deposit
    by jpkeates
    No.

    You are being asked for compensation for a loss beyond fair wear and tear which the landlord is obliged to keep to a minimum.
    The loss would be the lost use of the carpet, which have lasted 5 years already, and would have had an expected lifetime of maybe 8 years.

  • Quick question about deposit
    by KittleSkittle
    Am I correct that the landlord can’t charge me for new carpets, but only for the loss of expected life of the original carpets? Or should I just pay up for an easy life?

    by KittleSkittle
    Carpets weren’t new when I moved in five years ago. There is some damage beyond wear and tear, which I am happy to compensate the landlord for, but do I have to pay the full price of new carpets?

  • New AST or periodic tenancy?
    by WYB544

I'm trying to understand my options and the pros / cons i.e. should I ask them to sign a new AST for a new fixed...

    The cost would be attributed to the loss of the item (not incl. wear and tear), if you have damaged the carpet by way of burn marks or pet urine and the carpets were new at the time of you moving in, I would expect the full cost back. If in doubt you could raise the issue via the deposit schemes ar...

  • Reply to In view of gov likely to extend eviction ban again
    by jpkeates
    The government has been running scared because they've been told there will be a wave of homelessness, because there's a huge number of people due to be evicted PLUS an even huger number in arrears who will be evicted immediately it's not next to impossible.

    But that doesn't seem to be...

  • Reply to Question on letting out ‘residential’ park homes please
    by Piffy
    I was going to buy a Mobile Home on a site which allows owners to rent them out.
    The one I was going to buy was in a really good setting and would have taken a good photograph for advertising purposes.
    There were two reasons I did not buy.
    1. After talking to other owners on the site...
