Letting Agent not protected deposit and will not forward me the deposit

Hi Kate,

Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. This has been very helpful and enabled me tonight to construct a formal letter to the agent, my log shows I have tried 11 times to get the deposit information from them over the past year in person and via email.

That is also very useful to know I should return the deposit to the tenant rather than protect.

I will digest your other comments and form a plan of action for the non-paying tenants.

Letting Agent not protected deposit and will not forward me the deposit

Thank you for the comments. They are a Ltd company, I can't see anything about a redress scheme and I very much doubt they are a member of anything (even if legally they are supposed to be).I am still on OK (ish) terms with the agent and was thinking about a stern formal letter to the agent might be a next step to try and recover the deposit. Does anyone have any advice as to what to say in the letter to be taken seriously? (I was thinking I would give them a 7 or 14 day notice to return the deposit (or protect it) otherwise I will be taking legal action.

Re: Returning the deposit to the tenant - would it be a better option to protect the deposit with DPS now (before issue the section 21), or is this not valid and should return the deposit to them as you suggest. To complicate it further the tenants do not speak any English, so it might be easier to deposit with DPS rather than trying to explain and get bank details from them, etc.

I have also had complaints from the neighbours and my freehold management agents saying that my tenants are throwing rubbish over to the neighbours garden, blocking the drive with multiple cars, and the tenants being unapproachable - so I think I am best to keep this as formal as possible.

Many thanks in advance,
