Deposit return to sharers
One of my property tenants 4 sharers moved out at the end of the tenancy. I would like to return their deposit as soon as I can however:
- I don't have a forwarding address for all of them, only one address
- no confirmation in writing from any of them that the deposit can be retuned to one person who is asking when it is to be returned
- there were a fe things that we had to do ourselves we came back from holidays in the day new tenants moved in so had no time to find anyone else to get the house in order e.g. freezer defrosting, dishwasher and washing machine cleaning, rubbish removal (2 big bags, replacing a few things.
Question: how do I charge them for the work we had to do ourselves? I asked them what they think is reasonable but they ask me how much is to be taken. Any suggestions? Would their email confirmation be sufficient for the deposit to be paid to one person or do I need a proper letter?
Thanks in advance for any advice
