Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends.

There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Question 1: He wants to take my 300 pounds deposit saying that I can't use my deposit towards the charges for damages as I lost this entirely for breaking my behaviour agreement and tenancy. Do he have right to do that? - If the tenancy agreement does not allow him to keep the money for bad behaviour then NO - he can NOT do this.
Question 2: He also said that I will also need to add on the lost rent @ £230/month as the room has no door.( where he posted advertisement of the room to let two days after I left and it is still on letting website saying 'available now'). Plus he is going to charge me another a few hundreds of pounds for damages. Again he gave me 6 day notice just on the phone without giving me any documents. I could repair everything ( if I had proper notice time. So has he right to charge me those 230 pounds? - No. This is because you could have repaired everything and he chose to give you notice. He did not have to, he could have just warned you. So no, he can NOT charge you the £230 a month.
