The situation is the tenant left the property 3 months into an AST agreement (6 months) without my permission as landlord, didn't pay the rent, didn't return the keys and left no forwarding address.

He has now returned the keys and says he has no intention of returning to the property and also provided us with a forwarding address.

The 500 deposit is held in the DPS but we are out of pocket by just over this amount (loss of rent, change of locks, keys, advertising for replacment tenant and cleaning etc).

I've not had to dispute a deposit before, do I write to the tenant with the costs and receipts, get them to agree to it or just go straight to the DPS?
