hi i wonder if you can advise ..i have a property which is let out by the agent but the agent is not maintainint the let , they have charged me 3 weeks rent and for findin the tenant. The propblem is the agent is holding on to the deposit the tenant has given and when i enquired as to why, the answer was that it was to do with current legislation that they have to hold on to the deposit until the tenant leaves. Can you please clarify...as it doesnt seem right that if since the Agent is not maintaing the let why are they holding on to the deposit, what happens if the agent closes who has to pay the deposit...thank you for your help
