    No, the TA is with the LL who left the flat for 15 days. Thanks mariner.

    AndrewDod, thanks for the reply.

    So... I was a lodger, although the landlord did not live with me?

    I don't know the money. The deposit was 400 pounds. The damage is erosion of wood from the shower.

    So you signed a TA with the flatmate?

    Sounds like you were a lodger.

    Would be helpful if you explain what sort of damage we are talking about, and how much money.

    But basically your route is through the courts, and depends on the agreement you have as to the deposit's purpose.

    when is a tenancy a holiday let?

    Dear all,

    I am an ex-tenant in a deposit dispute.

    I rented a room for only 15 days. There was another flatmate. I signed a handwritten document that stated I am using the flat as a "holiday let". I was not on holiday though. The flat is his residential home that he let out for only 15 days.

    The handwritten agreement mentions the rent paid upfront and the deposit - nothing else.

    He claims damages that preexisted and has not returned our deposit yet. There was no inspection of the flat before. What are my options?

    Thank you
