Moved out of our Flat at beginning of Feb.
In terms of deductions we accepted a couple of items being:
50 for some extra cleaning
100 for inventory check
However Landlord has decided we should pay for faulty fixtures and fittings and damage caused by said faulty fixtures and fittings:
1. After we had moved out but still tenants the Plumber came to fix a leaking ballvalve. When I went to the flat there was no pressure in the boiler. So I filled to half a bar. Checked everywhere - no apparent leaks so filled to just below 1 bar. Left it for an hour (to degas) and then switched on. The boiler immediately started making loads of banging noises and then the PRV opened and pissed a load of water out. - Land Lords wants 100 for that
2. The dishwasher leaked ll over the kitchen floor due to a faulty seal and float switch. The kitchen floor is a timber laminate so completely unsuitable and caused bubbling at the seems . The dishwasher leaked again in front of me and the land lord. He wants 350 for this
3. The bathroom radiator is basically a door stop and when someone opens it the door levers the radiator which has broken the clip holding it. I think my doddery FIL did this when he opened the door - he wants 50 for this
4. The tap on the Bidet doesn't work (it never has) and we don't use it because if that messy we would have a shower. He wants 100 for that.
5. He also wants 100 for some patchy painting that was as a result of having to clean up persistent seasonal mould.
Have said I will pay Clean and Inventory and on a 'commericial basis 5 although I could probably argue FW&T.
We paid this cnut over 16k for a 13 month tenancy. No issues other than jnr's noisy outbursts. Was very flexible in allowing unrestricted viewings in notice period.
