Tenant sub letting
I was hoping for advice
I have a property who I have rented out for over a year with the same people
I have now discovered the original tenants have moved out and are subletting with quite a large mark up
I have spoken to the current tenants and they intend to move in about 2 weeks time out however they have paid a large deposit with the original tenants (they have lied to them saying they were the landlord) about 2200 gbp and naturally want that back.
I hold a deposit with the DPS for the original tenants for about 1400.
The tenancy I hold runs out at the end of December
I think the original tenants are going to do a runner before then.
Can I with hold the 1400 deposit?
It is with the dps?
Should I have this money to the current tenants?
