    Where did you get this agreement? Doesn't sound like a typical AST.

    Done any training in landlord/tenant law please?

    I take it you have new tenants now.

    YOU made the mistake (which we all do) but you should just accept it, learn from it and move on.

    By all means offer them 50% of their deposit but if they arent happy I guess you could refund the full deposit or (just to be awkward) leave it sat with deposit company until tenant gets a court order.

    Life's too short. Learn a lesson and be better prepared in future.
    There is no question that I made a mistake.

    I'm asking for help now as in the agreement we both signed it states I can act as an agent for the tenant and let the house or part of the house during the unexpired term to recoup unpaid rent, which I have been doing.

    You sue the company for the unpaid debt, win & get a court order including an order saying TDS should release the deposit to you, then provide a copy of the order to TDS.

    Apologies for possibly adding to pile of **** but most mortgages and landlord insurance policies don't permit this either.

    TDS requiring court order

    Hello all,

    As an amateur landlord, I have made quite a big mistake.

    I’ve let a house to a limited company and used an AST template from the Law Society, not realising that the document is not valid for use with companies.

    All was well until March this year when the company decided to stop paying and vacated the property, mid-way through their agreement.

    It gets worse, I secured their deposit with TDS Custodial at the start of the tenancy.

    TDS are saying I have to agree with the tenant the return of the deposit before they can release it. They will not engage in dispute resolution as AST’s aren’t valid with a Ltd. They have said if we don’t resolve our issues, a court order will be required to release the deposit.

    The tenant has requested all the deposit back, which clearly, I won’t agree too.

    Any advice on how I can otherwise resolve this mess.

    Thanking you all in advance.

    I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

    We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

    My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

    What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

    Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

    I humbly note...

    The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

    The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

    I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

    In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

    IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.

    What you are proposing would breach your mortgage terms and possibly result in place being repo'd....
