Fair Wear and Tear
This is the deterioration in the condition of the Property and its contents which occurs naturally as a result of being lived in and used in a reasonable and legal manner. The amount of wear and tear in a property which will be considered fair will depend on a number of factors, including
- the length of time the property has been lived in by the tenants
- the number and age of the people allowed to live there,
- whether the landlord has allowed pets and/or smoking.
