  2. I know it's probably too late for this couple now, but what could they have done about it? Small claims court to get their £100 back?

  5. Got a cheque in the post this morning for the full amount. Did a little celebration ... then I realised it was already my money in the first place
  6. I already paid £120 upfront as a "signing on admin fee" (which WAS in the contract btw). This was 4 years ago, so before the deposit protection scheme came into place. I will definitely report back after I have heard something. And even if I never see that 50 quid again, I'll bog them down in letters such that their admin will cost them more...
