    You can deduct. However, this is not recommended as you may not be able to defend these deductions and it can lead to a claim which you may lose.

  • I have sent details of damages and quotation of repair to tenant 14 days after handover. Can Tenant still claim against me? Are quotes enough or actual receipts are required? amelia_lee2000 16/09/2016
