Final settlement issues for deposit return.


I had taken a furnished apartment from a company called AW-IMMO. I stayed there for 1 year and now returned to my country. There was a person, who came from agency to check everything is alright, found everything alright except for final cleaning (professional cleaners, the swiss way!) to which I also agreed. But now I have received final invoice which also says they had to replace 4 chairs worth 200 chf. This was not pointed out by that person. I am explaining my case on emails but they are saying that they need to charge this as the chairs were not in good condition. Is there any way to ask them to drop this?

Appreciate any answers.

Re: Final settlement issues for deposit return.

When the person from the agency came to check the apartment did she have a checklist with her with which she ticked off the various rooms and their condition?

This is not required but quite often done. After the inspection both parties sign the checklist and this is deemed to be the condition of the apartment when you departed.

But before going into this the real question is: what was the condition of the chairs when you left?
