    It may be possible to draw up something, but it would have to be carefully worded. On the one hand you may inadvertently create a contract for a tenancy and on the other a contract that would fail because it is deemed unfair.

      I paid my holding deposit before any terms and conditions were set up. Only upon seeing the receipt did I realise that the deposit is non- refundable. There have been no said obligations of the landlord. So where does that leave me to get my money back?

        So long as you can prove it, quite good.

        Go to this page http://www.oft.gov.uk/shared_oft/rep...rms/oft356.pdf and look at paragraphs

        3.37-3.43
        3.67-3.69
        3.85

        and also at page 79

          Would providing the receipt as evidence with the T&Cs on and showing that I've signed nothing prior to this be enough?

          Thank you again for being so helpful

            Since I was never a litigator I cannot say for sure, but I would guess it would be.
