Unfortunately I over paid my landlord one months rent. When i spoke to the landlord she said this was fine and she would return the money to me and I text her my banks details so she could do this. This was on the 7th oct. Since then i have tried calling her and texting her but she hasnt answered her phone nor replied to my texts. I have also emailed her on the 21st, so fairly recently, but she still has not replied.

 

A relevant point may also be that she is attempting to withhold the whole deposit, an issue which one of my other ex-housemates is dealing with, thanks to this forum. This makes me think that she may not be entirely honest :!:

 

We do not know her actual address, she was on the electoral poll at living at the same address as myself but this was not the case in reality. Her sister lives next door to the house I rented from her.

 

what can be done?

Hi Mr Shed,

 

Thanks for your speedy response.

I have just checked the contract and the only address on the contract is the address for the house we rented.

There is a section in the contract for the landlord address, however this is blank.

Oh dear...

 

What about a land registry search on your property?

In that case, I would write a letter before action followed by court proceedings using the address on the electoral roll. You will be able to enforce using her bank details.
