I would like to know if I can get my holding deposit back.
I went for a property to relocate. The property was owned by a private landlord who appeared difficult from the start. She stated the deposit and asked us to pay via bank transfer. We did but 3 days later had to pull out due to not being able to transfer my child’s A levels. We explained to the landlady she was rude and now decided were not getting any of our deposit back.
I have argued no paperwork or tenancy was signed or produced. She’s saying a holding deposit doesn’t have to be paid back.
We didn’t even know it was a holding deposit, what can we do £650 down the drain.
