Dear RLA

I am writing on behalf of a friend/work colleague who is a 'Tenant'

He has just vacated a property which he and his family lived in for about 4 years. The landlord (via the letting agent) is seeking to claim a sum of £1,600 which they are saying is because the property needs to be re-carpeted and redecorated throughout.

I have been to the property and I would say that the property looks like it has been lived in and the carpet and decor is suffering from an element of what i would call wear and tear but it has not been 'damaged'. I would also stress that it is cheap bottom of the range carpet with no underlay and the decor is basic magnolia/white.

Please can you advise what is classed as wear and tear in relation to carpet and decor? i recall asking this in the past and there was guidelines with certain time-frames. Please can you also advise where the guidlines are stated so that we can present this to the landlord.

Thanks again for your time.

Kind regards

David.
