We were looking to move into a property and paid a deposit of £650 on the 1/12/12
The landlord has started to become a problem and is saying that we need to pay £500 to put blinds into the property as he will not allow us to put our own fixtures up etc. This is something we can not afford and do not want to do.
We have now told him that we want our deposit back but he is saying that its not possible.
The only piece of paper we have signed goes like this:
I (the landlord) have take receipt of the deposit, £650, in order to secure the property.
This £650 will now be placed into a deposit protection scheme, the details of which will be supplied to you, the tenant before the end of December 2012.
Any help / advice appreciated! - Sorry if its in the wrong forum.
