When tennacny is ended what are the expectations fot a tennant to get their full deposit back?


Clean and tidy? (how tidy, garden littered with cigarette butts)

Smells from unauthorised pets?


What exactly is expected?

What exactly is expected?

Assuming you have a full and detailed inventory preferably supported by lots of photographs and signed by the tenants at check-in, then what is expected is that they should return it to you in the same state of repair and cleanliness (minus fair wear and tear), and with all the furniture/contents there which were there at the outset.

If you do not have such an inventory, your chances of claiming anything from their deposit are fairly slim (unless they agree to it).

Was the deposit protectable and protected?
