What is considered normal ‘wear and tear’?

 

This is a grey area and a cause of many landlord/ tenant disputes.

Most disputes with regard to wear and tear occur because the landlord did not prepare a detailed and accurate inventory of contents and their condition when the tenants moved into the property.

It is also advisable to take numerous photographs with a digital camera at the beginning of each tenancy.  These can then be used at a later date if there is a dispute as to the condition of the property and its contents.
