Hi All, im in a rather sticky situation with an ex agent.
Basically i left a joint tenancy last August, well actually forced out of the home due to domestic violence. After a couple of months and lots of pestering i managed to get the joint tenancy transferred to a sole tenancy for ex partner so my name was completly off the tenancy.
Now im facing difficulty retrieving my deposit (im lead tenant on the DPS) ex has nothing to do with the deposit, but because he remains in the property the agent wont release my deposit back to me. Iv endlessly requested a repayment and they continue to reject. They have even gone as far as saying i can have my depsoit back but only if it goes to the agent first and they release it to me from there. Didnt fall for it, but this is so frustrating.
Its now gone to the disputes team, how likely am i to get my money back?
