I have just given up a tenancy on a flat that I have been renting for one year. The landlord is retaining my £1000 deposit because of a stain on the lounge carpet. I never made the stain on the carpet.
The flat was rented in Scotland.
The inventory did not mention the stain, but it was covered by a table and chairs when I moved in, and I didn't notice when I reviewed the inventory.
The dispute is being reviewed by LPS Scotland.
I did not make the stain, and can ill afford to lose £750 deposit.
