Hi So the landlord came back with a response today on the 14th day. She has supplied a quotation not a receipt, the quote appears to be from a building maintenance company (i googled them and they seem to exist) and lists out work she had asked them to quote for, which included re-varnishing of the ...

We have given landlord 14 days to provide a picture of the rug after the 'clean' and a receipt if she had it professionally cleaned. No response as of yet and we have a few more days to wait. We are thinking of taking her to SCT if she does not respond but have to say I am not looking forward to the...

Hi JR8 Wondering if you can offer some additional advice. The landlord has now provided an image of the rug that she supposedly took on the day we handed over. She has stated that no tenant would want to live with a stained rug and that is why she is charging us the amount as detailed in my previous...

Okay here's the details We moved in to the apartment in Jan 2012 on a 3-month short term rental and signed an inventory list that included the rug. I am aware now that I should have taken images of everything in the apartment. On our departure at the end of March we walked through the apartment with...

Forgot to add this above.

Her reasoning was that she tried to get the stain out but because she couldn't she is charging us for the remaining 5-year life-span

We actually only lived in the property for only 3 months on a short-term basis but she has provided us the receipt to the rug which is why she is arguing that she's giving us 3-years off the total cost. Also, she only found this 'stain' once the handover had been completed. We had agreed to other is...

Taken on a ride by Landlord but can I keep rug?

Like everyone else we are being taken on a ride and have to pay for a very expensive rug in our fully-furnished apartment ($1200). She has charged us for 3 years use out of a '8-year' use rug. My question is if I have to pay for her to get a new rug due to a supposed 'stain', can I ask that we have ...
