    I am currently staying in a private halls of residence with 4 other students, we are due to move out on the August the 4th and the management have been conducting damage reports that affect the deposits we paid at the start of the year.

    Stools have been smashed, tv has been melted, cooker hob has been replaced, fire extinguisher has been set off and the toilet door has been broken. All of the damages occurred during a party which I dint attend as I was at home that weekend. No one has accepted responsibility therefore management is sharing the cost between all 5 residents. I have explained my case however management wont accept my appeal and now i will loose most of my deposit of £250.

    Has anyone got any ideas??

    A melted TV???? Sounds like a pretty hectic party!
    Could you not get your parents to ring them and tell them you were at home? You would think the 4 other students your sharing with would do the right thing and tell the management you wearn't there at the time, it's pretty unfair.
