    Advice needed - tenant damaged furniture

    l was notified of this by my property manager after last tenants had left and new tenants had moved in, that the bed frame and a seat in a room 1 are damaged. Please see pictures (*re-sized by moderator as too large*).






    Whilst looking for replacements, I thought why didn't the property manager check the inventory?

    My property manager had always charged £200 for advertising (even though they exclusively use gumtree) and inventory.

    I had never received the copy of the inventory,
    even for the new tenants which had just moved in last week for one year.

    We all know the last tenant was responsible for the damaged furniture, what can be done now?

    For starters, I would be on to the property manager to get sent a copy of the inventory, check in and check out. 

    Did your property manager organise just an inventory or have they had a check in and check out report completed too?

    I would say the bed damage is wear and tear (those metal beds arent strong).

    however the chair damage is something that should be paid for by tenant as it would have taken a lot of force to splinter the wood.

    thanks for reply everyone.
    HINCH PMS Lt- l have asked the property manager what the 'Ad / Inventory/ check in & out' £200 charge was. no reply, which is little surprise. l have used them for 3 years now and not once have l had an inventory. Should an inventory have photos of the condition of the property as well? l am honestly unsure about check in check out report. l have just emailed  them, will update you.

    Lou Valdini- I never had the deposit, property manager did.

    JOE BLOGGS- it was the current tenant that noticed those damages, 'property managers' surely should of. current tenant also said the opposite. ie the bed looked like something heavy was thrown on it or jumped on by a heavy person, and the seat looks more like wear and tear. Either way, it was done by the last tenant who left in early August. Have you had experience with those metal beds?

    that bracket needs a leg in the middle of it, i think if you flipped it over and pressed down on it youd get it back in shape but it will just bend again.
