Kitchen Grease.

Recommended Posts

Hello there, occassional lurker, first time poster.

Having recently moved out of rented property, we had to chase up our deposit. LLadvised that there was some grease on the kitchen wall just behind where the cooker was located and would need to be repainted.

Now there was some other damage which we knew would cost around 50 quid at the most (there was some staining on the wood flooring). As far as we are concerned, the kitchen just required a lick of paint, in other words could be put under "wear and tear." Moreover, LL still had the paint she used from before to paint the kitchen, so it's not as if LL had to buy any more paint.

Having got the cheque, LL has deducted 160 quid. :angry:

So, I come here to ask where the best way to go now. LL has not supplied us any evidence of how much was charged for each item (invoices or anything), so would we have a chance at a case through small claims?

What have you got to lose? Not a lot: you can't be done for costs in the small claims court, and if nothing else it will force him to produce invoices etc to justify his deductions. All for just a few quid.
