Re: Issue landlord unfair damage claim

There was no such formal handover. He was travelling when I left on the last day of the agreement so I left and left the key in the mailbox as had been agreed with him on the phone...

Thanks a lot
A handover comprises verifying every room in the room in the property and comparing to the notes written when you arrived to the apartment. At that moment any damage is discussed and/or reported and you sign. If there's no damage, you leave with a document from the landlord attesting this.

On the other hand, not sure he can claim any damages if did not follow the formal handover procedure. How he can prove the damage was done by you?

The insurance suggestion from others is good. They are experts on this king of discussions.
