FOR JOMO1972 it was privately rented on a six month basis via an estate agent. the inventory was taken by another company who did the inventory when I moved in and out, he noted that the oven was not cleaned when we moved in and that the fridge and freezer had not been defrosted or cleaned. he said on the moving out inventory that the cooker was still not entirely clean but he would recommend that if there were any charges I should only be liable for 30% towards oven cleaning, he noted that the fridge and freezer were indeed cleaned and defrosted prior to hand back.
the estate agents are trying to take 180 for cleaning the oven and surrounding cupboard, and a further 150 for floor damage which they say occurred two days after I handed the keys back due to me turning off appliances, they argue that all appliances should be left switched on which I disagree with.
many thanks, I will argue to reduce the amount they are claiming
