Can landlords demand more than the caution?2 Replies
Hi everyone,I hope this hasn't already been posted here before, but my roommate and I are in a bit of a predicament, and I haven't been able to find much on this. We've just moved out of our apartment, and the landlord has demanded an additional €1000 on top of the initial €1000 we'd given as the caution. Justifying this, she's come up with a whole slew of charges (replacing all the tile grout, re-coating the interior of the bathtub, painting the backs of the mirrors with a special paint, etc.), and I'm not sure what to do. We don't have a written contract, and I don't know anyone else who's had this happen to them (though perhaps they've just been lucky). Any advice?
