Basically, the other day I got my deposit back through this stupid scheme, completely unaware that the (un-nominated, may I add) lead-tenant had the final say in how much everyone got from the money our landlady decided to give back.

 

I said to my LL that I would only give her my bank details if the whole thing had nothing to do with the 'lead-tenant' because I knew she would try and pull some stunt - basically she thinks I owe her money because she paid bank charges she racked up on our rent account by stupidly putting cheques in a day before the standing order went out.

 

Anyway, after being promised there was room for everyone's account details and it wasn't going into 'lead-tenant's' account, I gave my details to LL (and only her, didn't give her permission to pass them on). So a couple of weeks after that, I find out that £90 of my deposit has gone into LT's account and that my LL knew about it but didn't tell me or the DPS about the problem...

 

Now, from my basic knowledge of law I'm sure this is a fraudulent use of my deposit money and is, in fact, stealing, no? I was owed the same amount as other tenants (4 paid £330 deposit, including me, one paid £270) - which equated to £305 after interest - I was returned £212.

 

Can anyone advise me what to do now? - I know it would cost more than £90 to go to court, but this is illegal, right? Surely, whether I owe money or not (which I don't) it can't be taken off me this way?

 

Thanks
