Customer Question

Please can you help I'm worried. I have just checked out of a sixth month rental. I was checked in by a rental agent in March but NO inventory clerk showed up, so myself and the agent made an inventory. There were many obvious faults noted.
Today an inventory clerk did turn up but used an inventory from 2015!!!
They have noted EVERY SINGLE mark scuff and chip, and are using today's against that of 2015 (he has had other tenants in between this time and my 6 months)
I fear the landlord will refuse to hand back £7000.00 which HE holds (not an agent).
Surely he can't use this old inventory as a reference.
Please advise. Thank you so much.
