Hi I have been issued with court papers regarding not protecting a deposit/rent in advance. A letting agent was dealing with this property and moved a guy into the property. He has since moved disappeared without giving 4 weeks notice and made a claim against me for not protecting his deposit. The letting agent are saying he has not paid a deposit or rent in advance. The guy claiming is saying he paid instalments totalling £350. In my contract with the letting agent it says they are responsible for all deposits and protecting them. Am in still liable ? An=d should it be them going to court and not me?
