  1. Thanks, I thought it a bit weird he would say that they work for the LL if they're supposed to be independent. I'm betting they just forgot to send it to me and are now covering their backs. The check-out is clearly far more detailed than check-in with about 10x the number of photos.
  2. And next reply from them, Already seem to be backing down on threats of court. Is this true re the inventory though? I thought they should have shown it to me and it even has a gap at the back of the inventory for a tenant's signature. Anyway, I've said we can't agree and should use the dispute resolution service.
  3. Have responded to that effect. Also, the tenancy agreement made no mention of pets at all. I specifically checked before we got the cats and as it wasn't mentioned I went ahead so that's a load of nonsense anyway.
  4. Hopefully I won't be renting again so it won't be an issue but I could do with that money to pay for some DIY costs. Thinking I should call their bluff on arguing I devalued the house and demand to see some receipts.
  5. Alas, as I was preparing to get married at the time so very busy and the stuff in the garage didn't really bother me and I was barely using it I never complained about it.
  6. Right, so I've now received the following e-mail from the agent following my own suggestion on the TDS system that I am willing to pay £150 and reclaim £700. Now, how easy would it be for the LL to claim the house was sold for less because of me? Bear in mind the house was sold within about 3 or 4 weeks of being put up for sale (I know because they contacted me about getting access for the surveyor). Also, I'm starting to suspect they never actually paid for any of the things they are trying to charge me for and just sold the house more or less as is. Can they take from my deposit for cost
  7. Been a long time lurker here. I bought my first home a few weeks ago. Wasn't convinced we've hit the bottom, but a combination of factors such as being sick of renting and being at the whim of annoying LLs, being kicked out by my current LL, my father-in-law coming into some money and offering to help and us finding the a place at a price we were happy with (needs some cosmetic work but I'm up for some DIY). It's nice to see some colour on the walls and be able to get creative in the garden (not that I've been able to do anything much out there yet with all the rain). Also me and my wife want
  8. Even if they never got me to approve their inventory? They never even sent me a copy for me to make any amendments etc.. Anyway, after e-mailing them re my issues they didn't respond and today I get a TDS repayment proposal of.... £50 fro £850. Loled at that, no way does it cost £800 to get rid of a couple of TVs and some other small bits and pieces.
  9. The inventory was not signed by me. I do have a TDS certificate that the deposit was protected. Was an AST, moved in in July 2009 and renewed the AST each year (3x 12-month ASTs in total).
  10. I've just moved out of what I hope will be my last rented place having bought a little house with my wife, and now the letting agent is already trying to hint at trying to rob me of my deposit and there's a few bits I'm not too certain how to deal with. I'll set the scene a little, we checked out last Saturday, but annoyingly my car broke down and I had been due to gather up a few electricals that I was taking to the tip (mainly a couple of old TVs). Anyway, I called to say couldn't do it, they would have to arrange removal of these items and do the checkout without me and I would post the ke
