    Deposit dispute & Breach of advertising?

    1. The flat I have just left was painted, cleaned and inspected with no issues.
    Apparently there are some rent arrears but the letting agent has no evidence of when and who is responsible (shared accommodation) They have decided to take the entire £750 deposit without stating exactly why and without proper proof that money was owed - Please advise

    2. The new property I have moved into (run by the same lettings agent) was advertised as ideal for 4 sharers. We have 3 people on the tenancy agreement but they are unwilling to allow us the 4th. We need the 4th person to make the house more affordable and feel that they are acting unfairly - Please advise

    Was this an AST in England or Wales, after April 2007, where annual rent was less than £25k?

    Does tenancy agreement state 4 sharers?

      I agree with you. If L (via A) advertised it as being for four people, L should have no objection to letting to four people.
      However, L has let to three. Why did they accept and sign-up to that, if their intention was to have four (not three) residents?

      1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
      2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
      3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.
