It was an assured shorthold tenancy. Which I renewed every six months. At an admin cost of £40. Northwood agency of crewe wont help me with this as they say it was a lett only contract... because i knew the landlord.

Although the agreement says deposit is protected when i contacted them they say that the "certificate of protection" was in their deleted file and to contact the agent. They said they will look into it. And not to worry as it was ok.
