concrete flaking


F

FiMac

Wondering If I could get some advice.
We just moved out of a home and the landlord is now saying we have damaged
the concrete. We feel we have done nothing to cause the damage he is
suggesting.
The concrete is polished, and a large area, but in just one spot there
started of a small hole, just on the surface.
It has grown over time flaking of the polished bit.
Its about the size of a tennis ball now. Is there anything I can show or
tell him to prove we didn't cause it??

Thank you so much in advance

He is a rapacious idiot.... discussion will not work. tell
him to take you to small claims court if he thinks he can
win... then advise him to talk to a general contractor on the
issue and get some proof that you could have caused that.

Have pictures.. if you go to court show the judge that its
flaking due to bad concrete...as there is not central point of
impact showing a chip... there is also such a thing as normal
wear and tear.\

You will no doubt prevail if he takes you to court...which I
doubt he will... has he refunded your deposit yet? If not...
thats the cause..he is trying to find an excuse not to refund.

Were I your landlord, I would have wanted you to bring the problem to
my attention early in its existance. If you don't have fragments or
photos, I can't imagine what proof you can give.
