Hello,

When you go into dispute, the landlord returns the portion of the sum that is not disputed. The landlord has no claim over this money, therefore it is returned and they can’t go back on their decision and increase the deduction. 

So to answer your question – no, I’ve never head of deposit returns going on the reverse. Of course, if you take it into court, different rules play, but the deposit scheme will not require you to return money.
