    Landlord / DPS deposit return

    I took on a one bedroom flat tenancy in Southport late December 2020.
    Because of shall we say disturbances in the flat below... by early August I sadly gave notice to leave.
    I contacted the agent who on my last day turned up with his inventory notes for the flat inspection. It probably took just under an hour to tick all the boxes on his pad, with absolutely no questionable issues outstanding. I left the property around 2pm with the agent remaining at the flat.
    I had previously made contact with DPS re my deposit situation. Several days went by when I called in to the agents office regarding progress but it seems the landlord had not agreed the return. I went back to the agent a day or so later..he went on to tell me the landlord wanted to most of the deposit for carpet damage (wet) which of course was totally untrue!!
    Weather there is now collusion going on I dont know but Ive given the matter to a solicitor..

    Is this the DPS Insured scheme or custodial? What did the DPS tell you when you made contact earlier?

      Did you take your own notes of condition, loads of 'photos etc?

      Start dispute process with DPS today
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        Was there a question?
        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).

          You dont need a solicitor. Just contact the deposit scheme and decline the landlords request. In your evidence you can say that you were present for the check out inspection and there were no issues. The agent would have to blatantly lie to contradict you, which I doubt they would do.
