  • Former landlord owes me money for Holding deposit 5 years ago.Can I claim money back?

    My former landlord gave me back my Tenantacy Deposit for two weeks for my room, however he did not give back my Holding Deposit. He claims that for the two weeks £180 Tenantacy Deposite and two weeks Advance Deposite £180 he used the Holding Deposit £90 to off-set this claiming I paid for three weeks instead of four. This is not true.

    After five years can I take him to court for the £90? Is there a time-limit?

    The Holding Deposit and the Tenantacy Deposits are both vague. Since I immediately took up residence can I argue that it is unfair of the landlord failed to give me back my Holding deposite immediately? Furthermore, since I have two seperate agreements can I urgue that they should be be treated as seperate rather than merged together?

    Any help will be welcomed. Thank you. Leshman

    I do know that you have up to six years in which to make a claim.
