Defending A Tenancy Deposit CounterclaimMake Text Bigger
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.
