“What can be deducted from your bond when you vacate the premises? Are there common issues to keep an eye out for to avoid losing your bond?” – Tibi

We asked Training and Development Manager at Professionals, Jenni Wood for an answer to this question:

“Owners and their agents can only deduct amounts they are lawfully entitled to deduct,” she said.

Jenni said effectively, this means putting the owner back in the same position they were in prior to the tenancy.

“This includes outstanding rent, but also the righting of any damages to the property.”
