I have no idea. The agreement says "The Landlord’s Agent must tell the Tenant within 20 working days of the end ofthe tenancy if they propose to make any deductions from the Deposit"
The 20 working days period ended yesterday (friday), and I asked them to send me the list of the deductions the landlord wants to make, the agent said they will get back to me next week maybe and the clause above just says that they have to confirm to me that at some point the landlord will ask for deductions but there's no deadline as to when they have to send me this list.
I find this hard to believe...my understanding is that clause says that the landlord/agent has to send me the list of deductions within 20 working days from the day I vacate the property, is this correct?
How do you interpret this clause? and how can i set a deadline for the landlord/agent to send me the list of deductions? i'm sure from a legal point of view they cannot hold my deposit until they are back their vacation and send me the list of proposed deductions..
Just to clarify, the clause of the contract i mentioned, does it 100% mean that the list of deductions have to be sent to me within 20 working days? can this clause mean something else?
They keep telling me that they don't have to send me the deductions within 20 working days, they just have to let me know within 20 working days that they will not return my deposit in full and they will send me deductions at some point. They said, this is what their legal department says!
if they breached the agreement, what are my options to go after them? contact the TDS?
Thanks Alex, that is clear thanks.
I'd like you to review my lease if possible and let me know if I can go for the steps you mentioned above.
Can we do this on this platform? and how much it will cost me?
