    Reply from DPS re passing on £5 legal costs

    This may be useful to someone as the question is not answered anywhere on DPS site.

    Btw, I know its only a fiver but when youre only witholding £20 for cleaning then thats a significant dent!

    My question to DPS:
    I have a tenant who is not responding to communications regarding returning part of their deposit. I believe the next step is Single Claims Process and this means getting a document sworn by a solicitor which will cost me aprx £5. I feel it is only fair to add this fee onto the amount I am witholding from the tenant as its not my fault they are not responding (I know they have got their letter/email from you as I have spoken to them about it, they are just being difficult). How do I go about adding another £5 onto the amount of deposit I am witholding? I assume I can change the amount Im witholding?

    Their reply:
    You may add the £5 charge to the claim amount when submitting your single claim to DPS.
