Not just this as it’s a lot of money
Expert:  ReadyLaw replied 9 days ago.

Thanks for your patience and enquiry. I am not sure I see where the agency has done anything wrong based on what you have said.

Expert:  ReadyLaw replied 9 days ago.

Legally they can charge you for the last month you stay in the property. They may then return your initial deposit. This seems to be what has been done by them.
