Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

Good morning everyone, my girl friend has a battle with her ex landlord’s agent after entering into a verbal contract to leave.
She wanted out quickly and the agent said they’ve found someone and she should get packing quickly as new tenant wants to be in in 2 weeks.
She found somewhere and paid the deposit without getting it in writing….we are where we are!
Tenant fell through and now they still have her deposit with MyDeposits and want to take the one month rent owing from that. Second new tenant found and signed recently.
I’m thinking of a Small Claims Court action but is it against the agent or landlord and is that the right course of action?
