loose toilet base with leak of water from it (I had informed him about that by phone 2 months before the end of tenancy but there was no leak at that point...i had not chased him as I was out of the property most of the time as i had started working in another place, my wife was still in the property though)...damage and wear in the shower room ikea wooden cupborad...a 1x1 cm outer crust chip shave of the shower base...damage in the kitchen tap (i told him i had the tap and bought a new pipe but could not fit it in, but he did not want it and said I will change the whole system?!..he repainted the flat, but I had handed it over in a clean condition....the damage in the worktop (5x 6 cm partial surface burn due to hot object, which I admitted I am happy to cover which expenses via my insurance)...it's worth noting I stayed in that property for 2 yrs and 4 months and never called him for any maintenance ...never costed him a penny...I used it in a fair way...lived with my wife and a 2 yr old (now) son...no much family or friends visits!
Yes please I need an answer to my query
I admitted I am liable for the burn and took steps to cover the expenses for that I informed yourself
My question was, "has he got the right to summon me in court?" which he confirmed will do as I disagreed to leve the deposit for him.
And what legal action shall I take to cover myself, especially that I invited him to assess the property and repair the other damages, I told you about, almost 2 months prior to the end of the tenency agreement?
Thanks a lot
What do you mean by unlawful action? The toilet base leak must have been casued by my daily usage, but nothing extraordinary.
Do I need to inform any authority (type of legal action from my side) that I had asked him to come and address the damages 2 months prior to end of tenency bt he was reluctant to preserve my rights?
If this goes to court, what are the possible consequences...would such a summon affect my CRB if the court advised he was right...if court advised he was wrong, what would be my rights?
thanks a lot
Do I need to appoint a solicitor for court....and if the court favoured my side, would he pay the costs of my solicitor?
