Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.

Are you able to access the tenancy agreement to see your liability under the tenancy? Some contracts are limited to the rent but others include damage to property - until the contract is checked then it will not be possible to answer your question.

If you want to upload it here I can check it for you. The guide to upload documents is here:
