Tenants in dispute over deposit
New to RLA and typically something has just popped up that has confused me. Two tenants (best friends pre tenancy) have had fall out and since we have ended the tenancy at break clause leaving damages. Landlord has asked for £200 deduction which has been accepted.
Problem is, one tenant, A, is saying of the one month rent (£825) and six week deposit (£1142.34) paid in advance, the other tenant, B, contributed £300 and A paid the majority. B is saying she contributed that £300 to the deposit and A is claiming that the money was towards the rent in adv.
So whilst deductions have been agreed, what am i to do with returning the remaining deposit as A is adament B doesnt deserve anything and typically nothing was put in writing between them??
