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

I have been disputing with a letting agency about how they have handled my old property, I took out a lease on the 01-01-12. I signed a brand new lease and gave them £850 deposit
They did not lodge my my deposit within the correct time frame (by Nov 13 2012 the cut off) it was received on the 26-11-12
I have only just found out where it was being held and that they have taken the deposit for so called damages. They also only deposited £815 not £850.
I have asked for the inventory that is signed by both party’s as outlined on page 2 of my tenancy agreement, they can not provide me with this as one was never done. I found out that they simply wanted to fit new carpets and decorate to gain a higher rent but blaming me saying I caused damage. I have pictures and the property is how I left it. Rent up to date
Can someone advise me where I stand ?
I have read elsewhere that they are already in breach by not lodging my deposit within the time frame and by law are required to let me know where it was?
