Hopefully somebody can advise with this…
I recently moved out of a rented house and there were a couple of things we had damaged that the landlord is saying need to be repaired/replaced, that this is beyond reasonable wear and tear, and will be deducted from the deposit.
I accept this, but would like to know whether I am entitled to ask for (say) three estimates from independent contractors to try to ensure he does not try to overcharge for these repairs? Also I believe it’s likely he’ll be getting a family member to do the repairs so, unless I say something, he won’t be getting independent estimates.
Thanks for any advice.
