Hello,

 

How much is the deposit and is it protected?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
£540 and yes its protected
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 7 days ago.

In that case, she may raise a dispute with the deposit protection scheme and ask for her half back on the ground that she is no longer a tenant.
