My letting agent (Field & May) wrote to me and told me that the deposit was held with My Deposits. However, it turns out that this was a lie and there was no deposit guarentee at all.

The tenant turned out to be an 'escort' and I evicted here. There was thousands of pounds of damages, but because the letting agent lied, she's claiming the whole deposit back and taking me to court to have it returned.

Can I plead to the courts that I did the best I could to ensure that the deposit was secure? Or is this just going to go badly for me?

Any advice?

Michael.
