UK: "Standard" deposit deductions for cleaning a newly-fit carpet?

This is a UK question! I just left the UK along with my old rented flat. My landlord is suggesting some "standard" deductions for cleaning the carpets "because they were newly fitted just before checking in". Can they base this on anything?! [more inside]

Controversial Subject

(Ontario, Canada) Other people in my building have cats. I adopted a cat yesterday. I found out today my landlord only wants declawed cats in this building. This cat has claws. Does he have a leg to stand on? Could I get evicted over this? Should I just take the cat back? [more inside]

It's cold outside - and inside too!

UKTenantFilter: My heating broke on friday at 2pm. The landlord turned up at 4 but didn't fix it then because he 'wanted daylight to work on it'. Today (saturday) he said it couldn't be fixed because it needed a new fuse and 'nowhere that was open had one' - so we have to wait until Monday. [more inside]

Can I go to court for this?

UK tenancy filter: I'm in a shared house. Our contract is up at the end of the month. Against my advice, a few of my fellow tenants are refusing to pay their rent for the final month - claiming they need the money to afford to move. They claim that the landlord will be able to take the arrears from the security deposit and that we won't be taken to court over it... [more inside]

Living without a lease... risks?

My partner and I will be moving to Vancouver in August. We found a great place in a lovely neighborhood. The lady that owns the condo seems incredibly kind and down to earth.

Required notice for vacating apartment?

Our apartment was damaged on Friday, and the whole floor needs to come out, possibly some of the drywall too. The property manager needs us to vacate, and remove all of our stuff, for an extended period of time (1-2 months). (Note that we have been dealing with the property manager, and to a lesser extent, the superintendent, and not our landlord.) How much notice is he legally required to give us? We live in Toronto. YANAL. [more inside]
