I have dispute about deposit with my letting agent.
I was a tenant for 4 years in a property in Glasgow, then we moved , the letting agent is not giving my deposit back and demanding extra for few thing, as things were not same as inventory, but the inventory was written by the agent after i left the property , my understanding is it should be sign by both parties at the time of exit and entry, and inventory should be written by third party, but that is not the case, please guide me, i never missed rent in four years always on time no arrears or bills to be paid
i was told by the letting agent that they have the deposit, but i did not authorised, i was never asked, by the safedeposit,
i think they sent me confirmation but i am not 100%
hi i have spoken to safe deposit but they have released the deposit back to letting agent, as they tried to contact me via email, i have had no email it must have gone to junck mail, i was told by them he email was update on February when i left the property, so obviously all these years i had no contact with safe deposit , i don't know what to do, it the letting agent have them the wrong email.
ok, but it was letting agent
so let me clear it
1: agent did put money with safe deposit, but gave wrong email and i was not contacted at the start of the contract, but after i left the property agent realised he gave them my wrong email and updated the correct one .
2: safe deposit did contact me but after the detail was updated , but email must have gone to my junk mail, they say if they don't get response they release the money so the did and its with the agent now, so they have followed the procedure which the law states,
3: agent is now demanding more money as he things there was some extra work carried out
4: what is legal position as i have left the property and have not been given any papers that i am not in the contract any more
really appreciate your kind respose
