Hi everyone, what is the likelihood of landlord being able to make deductions without any check in or inventory? The only thing I signed was a TA and all it says is ď the property to be left in the same condition as when the tenancy started ď . My deposit is protected .

TIA

As Hippogriff says, it's unlikely.

But what has prompted your question?

Are there some areas of the property that are in a significantly different condition from when your tenancy started?

Thereís nothing really significant, Iíve just noticed a slightly raised laminate, other than that itís just some slight wear and tear .

I'm concerned about this too. My landlord left a number of items and did a brief DIY inventory. Thinks like a lampshade. Blinds. Pair of curtains. Outside furniture.

It's been over a decade and frankly they've disintegrated. There has been no updated inventory done or any house inspections. I'm concerned as she is the type of person it seems that will try and get me to pay for them.

None of those things will have any residual value after a decade - and likely they were not new to begin with.

If your landlord actually bothers to raise a deposit dispute, just state the facts clearly and the adjudicator for the deposit protection scheme should find in your favour.

Your landlord can't simply withhold money from you. They have to go through dispute resolution process.

Do you know that your deposit is protected in a recognised scheme, and did your landlord provide you the Prescribed Information about the scheme? If not, then you will have a large claim against her.

Fortunately it is protected. Unfortunately, they did give me the prescribed information.

I have kept a number of her things in as good a condition as possible, such as the lampshade and curtains. I'm very interested to see what she tries to do with the deposit.

No point worrying until it happens.

But, if she tries deducting any money don't agree to any deductions. State your case and remember the deposit is your money. Go to a dispute if she doesn't back down.
