    Tenants Deposit on sacking letting agent

    Hi .. the letting agent's T's&C's indicate that the tenants deposit will be returned to the tenant on termination of their agreement .. it is with a TDS and I have the details .. can I just request the TDS to keep hold of it?

    You can ask. Suggest you do, formally , asap.

    why the sacking & did you get copies of all paperwork (including proof of service of stuff eg EPC, GSC etc)?


    I can ask Boris to behave as a PM but doubt my chances of success

      TDS should deal with the agent only as their customer.
      You need to resolve this with the agent as part of the "sacking" process.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        Thanks to both .. I guess the only way is to ask both the TDS & the LA .. the "sacking" is due to work being done without consent over the agreed amount .. unnecessary work being done using EICR as an excuse without prior advice or consent. also (as if the latter wasn't enough) failure to follow instructions to deal with an ongoing issue at the property.

          Perhaps instruct in writing (keep proof of postage & copy) to return deposit to tenant.

          Should/might absolve you should there be a deposit dispute claim
