I was renting a room from a live-in landlord. My girlfriend came from Japan to stay with me for a few weeks. While she was here, the landlord asked for an extra €100 per week while she was here to cover electricity costs to which I agreed.
During her stay we both got Coronavirus. After I informed the landlord, we got into an argument and she told us to get out, so we got a hotel for the week, until we could sort something else out.
She is now refusing to return the money (full deposit, and €300 of the €400 I paid in advance for the girlfriend) I believe she owes me. So I will be taking this matter to the small claims court.
My question is, should I include the hotel costs in my claim? The hotel cost up to €1,500 for the week. Or should I consider that a sunk cost?
