    The agent works on behalf of the landlord. The landlord is responsible for the deposit. You sue the landlord in any case for return of the deposit. Give hime 14 days to return it and if he doesn't, then sue through the small claims court.

      Just to add to the above.

      The tenancy agreement is a contract between landlord & tenant therefore the landlord has liability to you. Take no notice as to what the tenancy agreement might say, as he is likely to want to resist paying up.

      It's up to the landlord to take action aginst his agent to make good his loss to you.
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.
