Hi, my property was managed by an agent who has failed to register and return the deposit of a tenant that has left the property. They have now sought legal action from me and asking for 3x deposit plus legal expenses.
This is the first that I have heard about this as they have been chasing the agent (who has now going closed up shop and defrauded me.
