I’am in a situation where my partner and I took on a property, where the landlord did not protect the deposit. We recieved the deposit back this evening thankfully, as we have now left the property. the landlord put the house on the market a few weeks so we decided to leave before the house got sold. We paid our rent on the 10 th July so we are paid up til 10th August. The landlord advised me I won’t be getting any rent overpayment paid back to me as I didn’t give him enough notice that we was leaving?? And got quite shirty when we said about protecting our deposit in the first place, I saw this as contradictive, as we have received our deposit within hours of asking for it?? Can I apply to the court to claim back the overpayment he’s refusing to pay, and would I have any chance of getting it back?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks
