dispute and check out inventory carried out but not valid
own invnetory done on check in - signed by both parties (but not in detail and looking at it - it may not help me)
6months tenancy and damages (with non cleaning)
tried to talk to them - they disputed everything - would not come to see.
I got an inventory company to record everything when it became obvious tenants were being difficult.
Have since learned that the inventory done after they left (10days) won't be any good.
All I have is text messages where they effectively admit the damages - but try to blame otehr factors.
After initial admission - they then tried on saying that all damages done in the 10days property was vacant -
I have statements from the cleaners and repair people that the stains and damaages etc were all mor ethan one month old.
I have court date on this in a week and am not sure what to do, as I can not reply on the inventories - all I have is the check in inventory and their text messages even agreeing to replace to the mattress and trying to say it is down to wear and tear (scratched on stainless steel cooker hob)
Property was brand new - they were first in - check in inventory agreed.
I have receipts of the furniture to prove all in new condition - inventory wa sleft with the for 3 weeks - they made one or two additions and nothing else.
What can I do?
