My agent gone bust with my tenants deposit
Just found out that my letting agent based in Southampton)went into insolvency earlier this year - possibly with my longstanding tenant's deposit. Is there a way in which I can find out if the deposit had actually be lodged with one of the big 3? I hold no paperwork as evidence - just trusted the agent. (in hindsight...Is it too late for me to register quickly and lodge the deposit out of my pocket? I spoke to tenant a couple of days ago and said I would sort it out. I am aware I need to act quickly - if its not too late. Any advise please would be really appreciated.
