Giving apartment back to Landlord
I have been looking after a furnished property for several years, managing it as a serviced house on behalf of the owners.
When I took on the house the inventory was done by the landlord in order to save them money. It was agreed that we would simply do a cursory check.
The owners stayed in the house several times over the years, and they often left the house in a mess.
Now I do not want to look after the house anymore. The owners are saying that we have to return the house in exactly the same condition as when we started managing it 4 years ago. They say we have to paint all walls, clean all carpets, dry clean the sofa covers and curtains etc. The walls etc were not checked by us and the landlords on taking on this house and there is no such clause in the tenancy agreement.
Any advice is most appreciated.
