  1. Hi Dorkinds, The DPS never said anything about the single claims process so thank you for mentioning it to me I have logged onto my deposit today and started a single claim. Thank you for your help.
  2. Hi there again, I've posted a few times here about a dispute with my LL i will go back over the threads and link the posts in for people to re - read its a long story so ill add a short version below. Just to go over quickly - My LL wants to keep my deposit at first he wanted a whole new bathroom suite fitting (for the sake of a cracked cistern lid) He's now added more things to his list such as cleaning & professional redecoration he's not consistent in what hes claiming for and seems to be trying anything to keep the deposit. He never completed a check out inventory untill 4 we

  4. Hi again guys - Following on from this thread - http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/226524-landlord-and-tenant-advice-dps-resolution-rejected-by-landlord/#entry1103088610 ON Thursday I had a email from the DPS stating that my X Landlord had issued another repayment request - we have already been throu this last tues / wed iv declined again and issued a payment request back to him in which hes declined- I then asked him AGAIN to use the resolution service.(i did at this point have it in my head that there was no other option but court as the customer service advisor from
  5. Hi again, Thank you everyone for your replies i am a lot more confident to what I was this time yesterday. How it was broken was the toilet is placed right under a window, I had a glass Vase on the window cill with fake flowers in, one evening i had the window open and it was quite windy I forgot the window was open went to bed and was woken by a massive crash (I did at first think someone had broken in) but the vase had hit the cistern lid which caused it to break and the vase smashed. I must admit the lid was like pot very strong and sturdy not like they are made today. I read the article
  6. Hi everyone, So you all think I have a good case to stand in court? It really does take the mick what he suggested in his letter. Even down to the carpets hes wanting to charge us full price with no deductions for general wear and tear but on saying this - I wasn't aware that there is a margin for wear and tear and they have to make some allowances (and im not sure if he is if im honest unless hes trying to pull a fast one on us) - I suppose you live and learn! Thank you for everyones advice upto now.
  7. I have no photos of the decorative standard in house. I'd be happy paying 50/50 for the painting but i do want to challenge his letter against the check in inventory as on there it has 6 pointers saying there was cracks to walls/paint work and even mould in the corner of one room so really in my eyes this is proof that the house was not in a good decorative state to begin with. There's no check out inventory. (we've signed nothing on moving out) I do intend on fighting this further I'm usually just one of those poeple who follow what others say and at one point he had us believing we would h
  8. Hi Gloom monger, It's £500 for the deposit! Do you have any suggestions for websites offering free advice? I've tried ringing shelter today 3 times but I just kept being told they where busy and to call back later. I really need legal advice really as I don't think the points hes stated are a valid reason to take all the bond, but then again I've not been in this situation before so know very little about this and all the in's and out's. Thank you for your comments.
  9. Hi if this is in the wrong area please excuse me! This area is a little grey to me and i have no idea whats what properly, so any advice would be great from others who have been in this situation or had experience of this - I ended my tenancy on the 20/08/2016. last week on the 25/08/2016 i received a letter from the landlord saying he wanted to keep our bond and then the reasons stated - one reason was because we had broken the cistern toilet lid but, due to the bathroom being old it was discontinued therefore they wanted a whole new bathroom suite and this would be taking from our bond!
