We were looking to move into a property and paid a deposit of £650 on the 1/12/12

 

The landlord has started to become a problem and is saying that we need to pay £500 to put blinds into the property as he will not allow us to put our own fixtures up etc. This is something we can not afford and do not want to do.

 

We have now told him that we want our deposit back but he is saying that its not possible.

 

The only piece of paper we have signed goes like this:

 

I (the landlord) have take receipt of the deposit, £650, in order to secure the property.

 

This £650 will now be placed into a deposit protection scheme, the details of which will be supplied to you, the tenant before the end of December 2012.

 

 

Any help / advice appreciated!

No contract has been signed yet.

We were due to move in on the 19th December

Rent was agreed at £650 PCM

All this has been done verbally apart from signing the receipt for the deposit.

you need to email or write to him asking for clarification about the property.

Either he proceeds with the agreement on the basis as presented when you paid the deposit, or he returns the deposit forwith.

You cannot be responsable for the blinds as they become fixtures and the LL will own them, especially as he wont give you permission to put up your own.

If wants blinds up, he has to fit and pay for them.

If you dont want to proceed with the property mark your letter as Letter before action and give him 7 days to respond or you will start court action for its recovery.

OP your narrative sugests a T commencement date of 1 Dec was agreed and executed om 1 Dec , with any prepaid ho

lding deposit being accepted as T deposit on 1st. I assume you have taken possession of property and moved in personal belongings?

Please clarify.
