Hi,

Is there a reason your landlord has claimed the deposit? Did you owe rent at the time you left?

We didn't owe rent, we didn't get any reply from landlord

Hi,

I would suggest that you write to the landlord and demand payment with 14 days. If he does not pay, you will have to take him to court.

You can do this online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
