Probably been answered before however ….
Deposit wasn’t protected, but the tenant decided to use the deposit in lieu of the last months rent. It seems I reluctantly agreed. at least that is what he is saying.
I am in the middle of court proceedings after asking him to leave for sub-letting the property, actively sourcing tenants via his local newspapers in Lithuania. I am suing for damage to the property as a consequence of the sub-letting.
His solicitor has raised the issue of a counterclaim based upon the lack of deposit protection. Can I argue that he agreed to use the deposit as rent and that fines etc have no place.
