Advice on end of tenancy charges

Recommended Posts

If anyone is still interested, tribunal hearing was yesterday. The landlords were informed that if the tribunal member found there had been no break of the lease they would have to repay the costs they had already received. The agent went off and phoned them, they decided to withdraw. So we won.  So glad we didn't just roll over and pay.  A big thanks to everyone on here who offered advice and encouragement.

P.S. That's Christmas paid for!   🤣

Let’s hope they pay up promptly. I still think the agent should bear some responsibility, maybe the landlord will seek to recover some cost from them. 


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

They dont have to pay - they withdrew their action and settled for the deal we all agreed in the first place. We saved the $995 extra that they were trying to make us pay.

Would have been quite funny if you had insisted in carrying on. Well done
