Less than a month before moving into a one year rental property, the landlady changed her mind and only wanted to offer a holiday rental of 2 months.
I had paid £400 holding deposit to the agent for the one year rental and all the references had been completed. As I had nowhere else to go, and risked becoming homeless, I accepted the 2 months holiday rental. I told the agent I wasn’t happy and would be looking for another one year rental, but I was running out of time and it seemed as if I had no other option.
The agent said that the holding deposit would now go to the landlady and not be held by the agency.
However, 4 days before I was due to move, I found another property. I informed the agent that I no longer needed the original place and moved in to the new property.
When I requested my deposit back the agent refused.
As the original agreement had been changed by the landlady, I feel I am owed some or all of my money back.
