I have just left a rented house. I had rented the accomadation for 6 years. I had an inventery inspection when I first moved in and had one when I moved out. The Company working on behalf of the landlord, are still holding my deposit which I have chased. There are bits that I will have to pay for on the inventry, which I have no issue with. However, I recieved an e-mail from the Company yesterday, 1 month and 3 days after the inventry had been signed off to say that the Landlord had visited the premises and had found that the back door had been broken and that I would have to pay for the repair to be made. Have I got any legal right to say no to this cost, on the inventry there was no issue found, (which took 4 hours to complete) or would I have to pay??? It seems to me that this should of been picked up on at the inventry, I was not aware the door was broken and in 1 month a lot can happen???? Please advise.
