  1. Hi everybody- I've posted on here previously regarding advice about getting my deposit back from my landlord, which I managed successfully due to great advice, so hopefully somebody can help me in my current predicament! You may well have seen recent news reports about a crane collapsing on an apartment block in Liverpool city centre- well unfortunately that was my building! At this point we don't know which flats are affected (looks as though mine was just missed but it could be flooded or collapsed etc we just don't know).

  2. Ok, I have since sent a response to the landlords previous letter basically disputing the points which he last made. I informed the LL that the tenants would not be returning the original cheques but expect the difference in 4 new cheques to match the full deposit, otherwise we would have no option to take him to court.

  4. Hi all, I was hoping that somebody on here would be able to advise me on my current position with regards to obtaining my full deposit back from my landlord. Myself and 3 other housemates all signed the same Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement which started on 1st June 2007 and paid a deposit of £900 between us. (It should be noted that we had a previous tenancy agreement with the landlord, however as one of the tenants changed we began a new agreement as stated above). The landlord highlighted next to the deposit section of the contract: *to be advised later- new legislation.
