Re: Damage deposits on moving out

It`s also useful to know that every item in your rented house has an official lifespan. For example, carpets last 10 so if your carpets (if you have them) are over 10 years old they cannot make you pay for any damage on them. Wooden floors last a different amount of time depending on quality. Were all your walls newly painted when you moved in? Again if they`ve not been painted in the last 10 years you`re not liable (less for bathrooms and kitchens). We employed a relocation specialist when we moved which is why I know all this info. It was definitely worth the money for us as our landlord charged us nothing.
Is that expensive? Might be worth considering if it's only a couple of hundred francs.
