I want to check whether my prospective tenant can claim back holding the deposit. In my case my future tenant agreed to pay me a deposit £200 to take the property off the market, but later on he asked me to create tenancy agreement without advance rent and 6 weeks deposit for which I didn’t agree.
The tenant was saying that he will pay advance rent on the day of key handover and was reluctant to give a deposit.
Now he has raised small claim against me for the holding deposit. There is nothing written between me and him as to whether holding deposit is refundable or not.
Please guide me about my options
