After renting a property for eight years, I would like to know whether the deductions made by the landlord on my deposit are legitimate.
Having vacated the dwelling, I requested a copy of the bank statement showing my deposit with accrued interest over the period of rental.
The landlord gave me a statement drawn up by his accountant, which included several deductions, including the fees of the accountant.
There was also a deduction for loss of interest over the eight-year period where I was perhaps a day or two late with my rental.
