Ok thank you, ***** ***** am in a bit of rut with them, they have a £500 deposit of mine and they are saying they will take the charges off of that. How am I supposed to get my deposit back, it is a lot of money and I should be getting the whole amount back providing the property is not damaged which it is not, at least me and the other tenants have agreed that they would pay for the damages they have caused. Also isn't there a minimum amount they can charge everyday after the rent was due such as 3-6% over the interest rate of the Bank of England or something like that, and is it not against some sort of housing act for them to enforce this. I would be really grateful if you could just give me some pointers so when I talk to them they understand that I know what is going on and how the law works so hopefully they will not take me to court and waste everyone's time.
Again thank you for your assistants. When you say court, does that entail a court as in the place you go in front of a judge and jury and where you have to present your case in person against the defendant or plaintiff. That might be a really stupid question, sorry for my lack of knowledge. Also would all of the penalty charges be scrapped or become void of any meaning after the tenancy contract for the property ends anyway? The contract ends in a few weeks.
Ok Brilliant and one last question, if it does go to court would I need to hire a solicitor, lawyer or attorney in person, and if so which one would I hire and would it be expensive because I'm only a student with a part time job at a pub, would I have to get my family involved?
