But she did notify me of the defects, hence the bill and email. The thing is she sent me it over 2 weeks after I moved out.



Art. 267 a

II. Checking the status of the thing and notice to the tenant

1 When returning, the lessor must check the condition of it and immediately notify the tenant of the defects which it meets.

2 If the landlord fails to do so, the tenant is relieved of any liability, unless either of defects that could not be found using the usual checks.

3 If the landlord later discovered defects of this kind, he must immediately notify the tenant.



The state of the pan could have been checked immediately.
The cleanliness could have been checked immediately.
The hair dryer could have been checked immediately. (For example in a list of items that were present, and doing a check list).


So read carefully the law, but anyway... follow the guy's advice!!!
