I was a tenant for 2 yrs with live in landlord. I had a license agreement. We had absolutely no issues during my stay.
However at the time of leaving, I was told the very next day that I will not get my deposit back as to he thinks I left the carpet and walls dirty. The walls had condensation, which he knew about and he did tell me that after I am gone he will get it cleaned.
Is there any way, I have the rights to demand my deposit back?
I would really appreciate the help/advice as I have been put in a difficult predicament.
Thanks to all.
Good morning Sainy
Thank you for joining us on the Landlord Referencing Forum
If you are having issues with a deposit being returned you can raise a dispute with the relevant deposit protection agency. A landlord or agent has to register a deposit within 30 days of starting a tenancy. You should have some paperwork showing the scheme they protected it with.
There are 3 Available schemes in the UK:
Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS)
Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS)
All of these have a dispute service you can use.
Hope this helps.
