A tenant moved into a flat in Sept 09
She gave me rent and deposit- then complained of mice in the flat. I solved the problem within three days.Even tho there was no sign of mice, I got a workman in to fill every hole in the flat with expanding filler etc.
The tenant decided to move out and was gone within 10 days.
She has now taken me to court claiming i would not give her any of her deposit back, i offered her just over half of her deposit back (which i can prove)
My problem is , i didn't register her deposit with a Landlord deposit scheme as she moved out within 14 days
Will the court just automatically fine me for this or do i have a defence in that she moved out before i could register it etc
