A tenant is disputing that she has not received all her deposit back. – During her tenancy the property was drug raided. The search was quote police “successful” and the tenant was arrested. She was taken and kept in custody. Whilst in custody a brick was thrown through the front window (drug related). We could get no further information from the police regarding her release and timescale. Therefore the Landlord had the window repaired for security and safety reasons as the property is on a busy main road. Subsequently the tenant was billed for the damage and emergency repair. – but this was never paid. Also on inspection of the property after the tenancy ended, the tenant had left 6 large plugged holes in the bathroom wall. Which she had never had permission to do from the |Landlord ( stated in tenancy agreement). Therefore the Landlord felt he was in his right to deduct theses sums from her deposit. The tenant has already cashed the cheque sent to her for the reduced payment of the deposit but is now demanding the remainder of the deposit and threatening court action. The deposit was taken before the deposit scheme was enforced. Where does the Landlord stand??
