Who pays the Deposit
I have been advised by Foxtons that they insist that the deposit paid by an outgoing tenant is to be repaid by the incoming tenant; not through themselves. The actual original deposit is still held by Foxtons in the tenancy deposit scheme. The tenant is now trying to withhold the deposit due to issues she sees with the furniture. Apparently, Foxton's do not do a check as this is a change of tenant but not an end to the tenancy.
