I am a lodger with other lodgers, and have a live in landlord.
When I first moved in I paid a deposit and one month’s rent.
I was told that the deposit would not be returned, but would be used as rent for the final month once I handed in my notice.
I have nothing in writing regarding the deposit, only a receipt for the deposit and rent (paid in cash). I am wondering if I should ask the landlord to sign a note making it clear that the deposit will not be retured, but will be used to cover the final month’s rent.
Or should I leave things as they are.
What do you think?
