  • Scotland- can L withhold deposit?

    I am a Scottish landlady, whose outgoing tenant left the room in such a dirty condition that I have had to paint the whole room and replace the carpet - she had a dog, which I allowed, but it has obviously peed on the carpet and rubbed itself against the walls when muddy, which has stained the walls. The carpet was a good one and only about 3 years old. How much of her deposit am I entitled to withhold?

    Didn't you have it stated in your contract the condition of walls, carpets and such when the original agreement was made? Keep all of the deposit if so.
