My landlord's wife said she was going to send me the form to sign now that I have left the property and the inspection

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My landlord's wife said she was going to send me the form to sign now that I have left the property and the inspection was done without me. She said she was going to send the form yesterday but there was nothing in the post today. She has already moved someone else in yesterday. If I don't get my form in Thursday's mail what are my options as she sent me a nasty text because I didn't get the carpet cleaned but it wasn't in my contract and her husband who was my landlord but had to go to Scotland because his father passed away, said to me when I moved in 2.5 years ago - don't worry about the carpet as it needs replacing and my mother was there to hear this.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: I cleaned for 2 days solid from top to bottom. The carpet was vacuumed just not cleaned
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: To keep the lawns and garden tidy and the property clean and tidy
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No just what my rights are

If it was thoroughly cleaned and an old carpet, the landlord is being unreasonable. I think you should remind her (if you havent done so already) that this is what was discussed and agreed. You should also tell her that unless the bond is returned you will claim in the Tenancy Tribunal, who are likely to agree with you
