Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

I did not issue a deposit protection scheme for one of my tenants in a shared house. The other tenants have the DPS done within 30 days of deposit, but this tenant has been in since end of Sept.
I received a solicitors letter informing me that it is the law and I have to pay compensation to this tenant who is moving out this Sunday 30/11/14.
Can anyone advised what I should do as I have already told the tenant that I will refund his £425 deposit when he leaves on Sunday, but he is pursuing this compensation of my late registering his DPS.
Please advice what I have to do as the Solicitor demands around £700 of compensation and the tenants has only been in the house for 4 months.
