Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I am a new Landlord and the first tenant has left after she couldn’t pay her rent. Her partner left the house a month before and the new tenancy agreement was signed in her name only.
Some damage had been caused to the property, gas meter changed without consent and was in rent arrears so the bond was requested back via our letting agents.
The tenant contested us having the bond stating that she had to leave because of a violent relationship.
They have offered us £200 out of a £600 bond which doesn’t even cover the rent arrears.
We have been told that if we take it to the adjudication panel we will not win and will loose the full £600.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
