Wear and Tear – Fair

  • Tenants cannot reasonably be expected to have lived in a property for a year or two and hand it back as good as given.
  • The law provides that reasonable wear and tear must be allowed in any calculation of damage.  See betterment.
  • It is best to adopt a pragmatic approach and accept there will be some damage at the end of a tenancy and not get all upset about what is in the scheme of things, minor.
