Throughout the year that we had the misfortune of letting a Ludlow property, my three flatmates and myself were regularly point-blank lied to:

1) At the beginning of the contract, the agent Jonathan, from the Docklands office informed us,that in the event of changing tenancies "the fees are always waived". No, each new tenant paid full whack, and naive though it was, our 1st lesson was clear to see..

Dear Cal
We are sorry that you are clearly not happy with the cost of a clean. This is the standard charge to clean a 4 bedroom house as outlined by the cleaning company. You will be sent a receipt in due course. The clean was undertaken on the advice of the check out clerk.
The cost of breaking the tenancy early as you have done is clearly outlined on your tenancy agreement, it is a charge per change of tenant, which may be one person it may be four. It is not a per person cost.
The deposit is protected by a deposit scheme and if you have issues with deductions made we suggest that you contact them. You would have received details of the scheme at the beginning of the tenancy and they are available through your 'my account' facility as well.
