Hi Shahzeel

I will need some more information before I can really help.

Did you rent a bedsit, a room in a shared house or your own private home?

Did you sign an AST (Assured Shorthold Tenancy) Agreement?

Was your deposit registered with a scheme?

Did the Landlord provide you with an Inventory for the property when you moved in?

If yes- did you check and sign it? Was it used for a Check Out inspection when you vacated?

Are you aware of the damage he is claiming? If so- what is it and what caused it?

Let me know as much of this as you can and then I can try and give some useful advice
