Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is the breakdown of charges? Do you dispute them all or in part please?
Hi AlexIn part
I dispute them in part. They are as follows:
Are you able to say what amount you agree with please?
£677.76 I have just tried to send you the breakdown.
You should to write and set out your losses and ask for a refund of the disputed amount within 14 days or say you will go to Court. Make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy.
If they refuse then you can issue proceedings which can be done online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by competing form N1 at: https://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
The Court will then issue the claim which will be sent to the Defendant and they will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce it. If the matter is defended it will be set down for a hearing. If the losses are £10,000 or less then it will be a small claim and you do not need representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
The £677 is what I received out of £1750. This is unacceptable and I would accept anything over £1000 as fair.
I would agree.
This is why you need to issue proceedings for whatever you consider to be the fair and reasonable amount
The chances are as soon as you issue proceedings action will be taken by your Landlord and negotiation
Does this answer your question today?
I have written out all my claims as unfair in his breakdown and they come to £670.58. I have written the following:
Dear Mr King
I am writing in respect of my obligations as tenant to 54 Middle Hill in connection with any claim for dilapidation that is assessed as not fair wear and tear. After nine years of tenancy fair wear and tear is pertinent.
Having considered your charges against my deposit I dispute the following:
my lease. £45
and not cleared by yourselves. £45
at the front were full ready for the bin men to collect)
fence for so long. Neither Alec, I or the neighbours wanted to sit out too much
due to the fact there was no fence and I apologised on your behalf to the
neighbours for this.
not to be replaced). It was not my job to reseed or returf your lawn.
a reasonable state, cleaners were paid for by me.
condition and as you agreed it was ready to be torn down and replaced. £25
it says that I can’t make any alterations to the colour scheme or decoration of
the Property. Making good holes- it is reasonable that a long standing tenant hangs
pictures on the walls as the property is their home for the duration of the rental.
taken when the shed was replaced as I have never used any.
scratched the hearth. £100
I offered to pay for professional cleaners despite the fact that you were getting decorators in anyway due to the fair wear and tear after nine years of rental.
The total I dispute being charged for is £670.58 and request this is paid into my account within 14 days of receipt of this letter to avoid any further action of court proceedings.
Please let me know if you think this is a good letter or if it needs amendments. Thank you. Joanna
