has anyone ever got all the deposit back, from somewhere they've rented?
Â£6 out of Â£120 but I didn't bother collecting it:(
but it was a special situation. landlords will basically try and find any way possible to screw money out of you as regards deposits, and it's nasty as.
the two times i've done it.
a lot of landlords are, believe it or not, reasonable people and will only charge you for stuff that needs doing.
every time I've tried it so far.
This time I'm having to pay 6 weeks resnt as deposit.
even tho the house is better than how we found it
then just don't pay you're last months rent.
(directly or by proxy) almost ten years of renting experience with five different landlords, and three our of the five have been utter bastards. and one of the good ones doesn't count because it's my current one and they're a company....
5 times out of 6 I think, and the money that was taken from me was to pay for the carpets to be cleaned. On of my landlords was a real twunt though and it took ages to get the money off him - had to threaten him with legal action
it helps to not break stuff i think
