Default Landlord refuses to give me back my deposit in full.


Recently I moved out from the apartments I rented and now my landlord refuses to give me back my deposit in full. I rented apartments with my roommate and we gave 1200 euros as a deposit. Now they claim they will need to replace two tables (220 euros, they have one scratch, but the condition is the same as it was), clean the carpet (120 euros, carpet doesn’t have any big marks), buy floor stain remover (60 euros) and cleaning services (150 euros). They refused to give me any receipts and say they will return me just a half of deposit. Are their actions legal? Can I sue them if I moved back to my home country ( I was a student there)?

Default Re: Landlord refuses to give me back my deposit in full.

I wish to inform you that if your landlord refuses to return amount of security then you may start legal action at The Rent Tribunal (Huurcommissie). You may first give a notice to your landlord that if they refuse to return complete amount in absence of any repair invoice as claimed by then then you may take legal action. If landlord refuses then you may file your action in The Rent Tribunal (Huurcommissie).
