    Does the renewal AST not include reference to the new deposit, theoretically then paid by you to L using £££ theoretically just repaid by L to you?

      The renewal AST says:
      "The deposit held over by landlord from previous term"
      The next clasuse says:
      "The tenant shall pay to the landlord upon signing of this agreement the sum of £900 by way of Deposit for the Landlord..."

      So it appears that it is accepted that the deposit has been "paid" for the purpsose of the AST but not for the purpose of the deposit protection!

        Use that as evidence that L received your deposit on the renewal.

          I don't know if it is of use to you, but this link from the DPS' website cites government confirmation that a renewal tenancy should have it's deposit protected.
