Landlady wants 177 pounds for dirty carpets and scuffed walls... Watch
Thanks for the reply. Here is an excerpt from one of her emails with a breakdown of the charges:
Painting of walls and wood work: £400 (work to be completed by David Wood, handyman)
Replacement microwave: £49.97 (purchased through tescodirect.com)
Professional oven clean: £60 (work completed by HobSnobs oven cleaning services)
Professional carpet cleaning: £175 (work to be completed by David Wood, handyman)
Total Per Tenant: £171.24
She isn't even replacing the carpet, just getting it cleaned. Its a small 4 bed house, 175 pounds seems a bit steep. But it is the £400 for painting of walls and wood work that bothers me. Seems way over the top!
