My landlord is trying to make me pay for things I did not break in my tenancy...she returned my deposit already though so can I ignore her?

I recently moved out of a property and a new tenant moved in. a few days in, the tenant has asked for a new bed - saying it was broken. its an old, worn in bed but it definitely was not broken when I left, The landlord says that as it was not broken when I moved in, it is my responsibility to replace it (even though I never broke it!!). if i am not longer on the contract, and my deposit has already been returned....what can they do? and what should I do? I dont want to fork out hundreds of pounds for something that wasnt my fault!

If the bed was not broken when you moved out, you should have any part in replacing it. Your contract with the landlord ended as soon as you moved out; they can't make you replace things because you are not contractually obligated. Talk to your attorney for professional legal advice.

Once you receive your safety deposit, you no longer are responsible for anything. Your lease is up, you moved out so it's a done deal. Don't worry :)
