    OP : Unless you can prove that you did in fact pay the last month's rent, however, your LL may of course counterclaim for that amount.

    This form will send an enquiry to all 3 schemes.

    This Letter Before Action has worked for others on this site and elsewhere.

    You are welcome to use either.

    OK. So the deposit should be protected in a scheme. Read about deposit protection here: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/tenancydeposit/index.htm

    If it isn't protected (you can check with each of the three schemes), move out as planned, hand back the keys (otherwise you will continue to be liable for rent) and then send you LL a Letter Before Action advising that unless he returns your deposit in full within five days (give a date), you will sue him for its return and for three times its value - this is the penalty which can be imposed on LLs who fail to protect deposits.

    This usually galvanises sloppy landlords into returning your money pronto, but if it doesn't, it is quite easy to claim it back through an online claim. The 3x penalty is trickier, but you can claim for that too if you wish. (It's a different procedure though).
    excellent.

    Should it be? In other words, is it an AST in England or Wales with an annual rent rate below £25k? Did it begin after April 6 2007?

  • Can T keep key if L does not return Deposit on expiry?

    On the last day - Landlord will have an inspection..I have no problem that damages to be deducted from the deposit..however im worried that he will not hand me over my deposit due to him believing i never paid rent for last month..

    so what should i do if i dont get my deposit...keep the keys? or give him the keys and sue him later?

    advice is appreciated.

    thanks
