I entered into a joint tenancy last August with a friend, whom I am no longer on civil terms with. We both departed the property in March this year.
At the time I paid for the entire deposit, excluding her share of the first months rent up front and the holding deposit. I did phone and ask the letting agents beforehand about the possibility of separate tenancies and was told this was not possible, but that the deposit would be returned to the account
it was paid from.
They also never informed me about the possibility of nominating a lead tenant and put both our names on the TDS certificate. Now we have both left and they have said it will be repaid 50/50 minus the deductions for her unpaid rent and damages! As well as £150 for an additional clean, even though I already paid for a professional clean and provided proof.
So I refused to pay for another clean as the same company offered to return free of charge, however the letting agents refused to allow it and moved new tenants in. The TDS have also said the same thing about repaying it 50/50, even though I’ve explained the situation.
How do I go about getting the entire deposit back? So I can then take her to a small claims for reimbursement of the deductions she owes.
