Hi thank you for your message, ultimately you are responsible for ensuring the deposit is protected and she can claim against you if it was not. The court can award her for the failure to protect the deposit three times the deposit amount which in this case works out at £2385. You can counter claim against her for repairs though the cost of repairs will need to be well documented especially if you are to claim beyond the deposit amount of £795. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
