My letting agency have just phoned to say that they want to do a flat inspection on Wednesday, I asked them if they could give me more time to clean and tidy things, but they said no and now I'm really, really scared... They've never done one before (and I've lived there almost three years.) When I pointed this out to them, they said that this is why they now need to do one. The flat, needless to say, is in a bit of a state. I was meant to sign a pet disclaimer to say that I would pay for any damage the cats caused to the place, but they never sent me one to sign. The main issues are: - the boys have scratched the sofa, armchair and footstool, although none of these things were new in the first place and in fact the inventory states that there were cracks and marks on the sofa and chair back in 2011. - they have completely destroyed the side of the bed by scratching it. - I've broken the blind in the bedroom, years ago, and never told them I'd done it. I'm really nervous that they'll evict me because of the damage the boys have caused, and even more worried that they'll accidentally let them out or frighten them by coming in. I'm not sure if I should take the day off work so I can be there when they arrive. What do you think? If anyone has any comforting words, that would be fantastic as I am really panicking here!
