Hi,
I've been a landlord for 20 years now. I remember the heady days when I just gave tenants cash back at the end of a Tenancy. I have rarely held back any money and often been quite soft on cleaning and redid it myself to a better standard.
I have never held back the bond till I had proof that utility bills had been paid. This is mainly as I know the tenant needs their bond back asap.
However, I have had 2 tenants recently who ran up huge debts including the utilities.
Are most private landlords firm on this?
Thanks
Susan
