Deposit deduction?

Advice please, fellow landlords? Tenants have just moved, leaving a few cracks in the bathroom sink, looks as if something has been dropped in it. The bathroom was totally refurbished when they moved in 2years ago. Can I deduct for this from the deposit? If so, what would be fair? I always maintain our property to a very good standard. Many thanks for any help.

Yes, you can make a deduction. If its repairable then the full cost of this. If not then you deduct the loss in value of the basin only. Value at start of tenancy minus value now.

Good to know, thanks!
