I am not sure what assured shorthold tenancy means, but It was a contract for 6 months from June - December 2014. I decided to leave the contract mid term due to other practices b the landlord which I did not feel was right. The landlord accepted my request to end early.
From looking at the contract, it would have been registered with Tenancy Deposit Scheme within 30 days of commencement of the tenancy
Thank you. I await your response.
Sorry I may not have explained clearly.
* It is not a fact that landlord damaged the bed. I am only guessing she did at least some of the damage during removal of the bed and is trying to hold me liable.
* The 8 days which I have proof of no bed, is proof that the room had no bed only. The rest of the redecoration was completed before those 8 days (12 - 19 September).
* Since my last email I have confirmed that the deposit was held with TDS and I have all references for this so will follow you r advice on this accordingly
