Hello I have just recently moved from a shared rental property living with a former friend and my brother. Upon leaving we were asked by the estate agents to provide all 3 bank accounts to have the house deposit returned. However without my knowledge or permission of me or my brother my former housemate asked for all the money to be returned to his account which has been the case. As such he claims the bills are owed to him yet without giving any proof he has kept the vast majority of the deposit money, only returning £150 from a total of £978 which should have been divided equally between the 3 of us. Where do my and my brother stand in this situation and can we take action against our former housemate and/ or the estate agent for failing to give usome our money back within the 10 working days stipulated in the contract upon leaving the property. Thank you Edward ****
Yes I have paid the deposit.
Sorry I miss read it. The deposit money was transferred into my bank account prior to paying it to the estate agentservices from all 3 parties but the option to pay it separately was given.
