Return of rental deposit (also in property)

Does any one have the answer please.
The tenant has caused a number of issues in the house and items broken or missing.
LL has itemised these and put a cost of replacement or repair.
Tenant wants receipts.
Is this normal?
Surely if tenant doesnt agree it goes to DPS and receipts are shown to them.
Or can tenant demand to see the receipts before deciding to accept or go to the DPS?

They won't have receipts if they haven't yet been replaced or repaired. It is usual to have quote if it goes to the DPS mediation but if the amounts are sensible then the tenant can speed up the return of the rest of their deposit by agreeing the amounts if they seem sensible.

It is usual for it to be quotes or estimates because the LL will be using the money awarded or returned by the DPS to effect the repairs/purchase replacements.

Yes, only quotes are needed at this point, unless the work has been done.

Is there an inventory?
