Question:
We have just moved out of a flat after a year and the landlords are unsatisfied with the state of the carpets in the flat. We had the flat professionally cleaned out of our own pocket and have offered to pay for a dry cleaning service, but the landlord still claims two of the carpets may have to be replaced, despite them not being damaged in any way. Do we have any rights at all in this situation?
Ryan
Answer:
Dear Ryan! First of all we need to know, was the transfer deed signed? If yes, you probably should not have any problems, cause the parties of lease agreement shall regulate this issue in this document: the damage, its cost etc. If this document was not signed or you disagree with this damage, you can engage the professional estimators to appraise this damage or to acknowledge the normal wear and tear of these carpets. But this valuation report could not be accepted by the landlord. Also be informed that the lanlord's refusal from signing the acceptance deed if you disagree to include in this deed provisions about you obligation to reimburse the damage, is not legal! You've just should to fix the technical conditions of the apartment and move out. The landlordin any way will have the ability to demand damage compensation in the basis of article 1064 of the Civil Code of Russian Federation.
