I have been renting my house for the past 7 years and have had 4 tennants. None of them have left the house in immaculate condition but I touched up re-painted and gave full deposits back.

This last tennant has totally trashed the house the floors and walls are disgusting but that can be cleaned and touched up. However the carpet on the hall stairs and landing is in terrible condition and it is clear that they have never removed shoes etc. There is no chance it will clean I have to buy new and I dont really know about how (exactly) deal with claims against their deposit. Also There was a king size bed and mattress in the spare room and they have left the bed in bits but taken the mattress. I have before photographs which were included in our tenancy check in forms which they have signed and have taken the after pictures.
