Having complied fully with my rental agreement during a lease of a property, I would like to know how I can recover the deposit, which is being withheld by the landlord.
Having paid the initial deposit, I fulfilled my monthly rental obligations for the full term of the lease.
The landlord provided no written lease agreement and no inspection was carried out at the start or end of the lease.
Towards the end of the term I discovered that the “landlord” turned out to be the son of the owner, who was renting out the property without the latter’s knowledge.
See what the experts have to say.
