Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

Hi I’m a fairly new landlord would like to ask for some advice please. I rented my flat to a company (they do short lets to tourists and guarantee me a rent each month), but their tenants are causing a lot of trouble to neighbours, noises etc.
Therefore, I have to terminate the tenancy early, they agreed, but decided not to pay last months rent, asked me to take the money from deposit. Our agreement was a company let, so I have not put the deposit in a gov scheme as it’s not required, the agreement states that they need to pay rent till last date.
Rent is 7 days overdue now, I guess I’ve been wrong to accept only 3 weeks deposit at the beginning too.
Can someone advise what I could do?
Can I claim it using the gov portal online? I’d like to hire a lawyer but the cost is probably going be higher than my rent!
Any ideas welcome, thank you very much.
