we moved into this house just over a year ago. The landlord has a management company who "looks after?" the property. Anyway they failed to protect the deposit until we threatened County Court action. However when protecting the deposit they never included the security/holding deposit of £200 that we initially paid.


We have a receipt to show that we paid admin fees and a security deposit. Now though, the management company are saying the £200 was also admin fees and the admin fee was for references, which it was for anyway.


Can we make a claim for that part of our deposit not being protected? If so do the same rules apply?


Many thanks

Security and holding depsoits are both very different things. One is a 'deposit' in the common sense of the word that should be protected and the other takes the property off the market and may be used for admin fees or be taken off the full months rent.


£200 sounds likethe sort of figure that one would pay for credit checks/admin fees etc. Did you pay an amount in addition to this that you considered to be for admin/credit checking fees?
