  • Depending on when you rented the property, and assuming you have a housing act tenancy, your deposit should be in a protected scheme. Therefore, you should be able to get your deposit back (assuming there are no damages to the property etc... etc...). You should have been given information by your landlord within 14 days of moving in to your property, and there may be information contained within your tenancy agreement. If this is not the case you should perhaps seek legal advice as you may be able to claim against your landlord via the courts. If none of the above applies, I can only recommend speaking to a housing officer at your local council to see if they would be able to assist you with the deposit.

  • I’d suggest speaking to the Citizens Advice Bureau as soon as possible to find out where you stand from a legal stand point.
