I was sent paper work headed
'Proposed Lease Of......address of property....Subject to Contract'
The section relating to the deposit reads:
A cash deposit, Subject to Contract, received on 29th April 2014 in the sum of One Thousand Pound (£1000) as surety to be returned to the Tenant upon compliance with the terms of the Lease at the end of the term.
no i didn't sign the lease. I informed them of my decision not to go ahead with the tenancy after receiving the contract but did not sign it.
