  • All goods must be fit for purpose, however unless you have been living in the property for an extremly long time then how have the carpets and curtains detiorated so much? I would suggest speaking to the letting agent or landlord direct and invite them round to point out your concerns and see what they say.

  • Tenants are allowed a "fair" level of wear and tear, this should be consistent with the amount of time elapsed during the tenancy - for example, it wouldn't be fair to expect a property that was newly decorated in 5 years previously, the property will probably show signs of wear and tear. Whilst exceptions can be made for this, cleanliness of a property should not be negotiable!
