Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello. Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist your with this today.
Please bear with me and I will be online and off-line from time to time and therefore, may be delayed getting back to you. You will receive an email when I reply.
If the garden is going to be sorted and the living room floor has been mended what is the issue please?
You need to go through the property now with a fine tooth comb and take your own photographs of every single solitary crack pinhole and mark. The condition of the garden also. Everything in detail.
Send the landlord check in inventory back to the agent and say that it is unsatisfactory and that this is the state of the place. Ask them to confirm.
Fortunately, you have raised this issue now when you have only been in the property for a week and not raised it later. Never ever ever ever rely on the landlord or the agents check in inventory.
