How to recover deposit from a difficult landlord

Recover deposit from difficult landlord
OK, you are ready to move out, you’ve cleaned everything, hired the carpet-cleaning machine which has done a really great job; you’ve painted over the little bits which needed painting over (magnolia, of course). You’ve replaced everything that needed to be replaced and have left the place even a little bit better than when you started the tenancy. The keys have been handed back to the letting agent, and now it is just a matter of waiting a couple of days for you to recover deposit from your landlord. Bizarrely though, no money appears and when you phone the letting agent to ask what is happening with your deposit – they inform you that the landlord has decided to deduct £300 for various things – none of which make any sense to you?

Useful Removal Tips For Moving Home

There is nothing more stressful than moving house. Relying on professional and experienced removers is the best way to ensure your home move goes smoothly. But there are a number of things to consider before your moving day:

1) Select an experienced and recommended removals company. Make sure to book your removals or ‘man and van’ company well in advance to ensure they are available for your preferred time.

2) Get organised and start packing your belongings 1-3 weeks earlier than you think you will need. It could take much longer than you imagine and this will ensure your removals company isn’t waiting for you to finish packing.

3) Change your addresses!

It will probably take you a few days if not weeks to manage to notify everyone of your change of address so start right now.READ MORE
