i have served Section 21 on my tenants and the council was paying me directly the rent because the tenant was in over 2 months arrears.

She has asked me to refund the deposit so that she can hire a van to move her stuff out. The deposit which she paid does not even cover the two months arrears which I can prove because I had to do that for the council to pay me directly.

I was hoping to get possession of the property first and then show her that the deposit will be used to part cover the 2 months arrears.

So my question is how would be the best way to do this now that she is asking for it while she is still in the property.

Thank you
