    Thank you very much for your detailed reply, tenant1001894.

    Another update from LL.

    I simply couldn't agree to the timeframe you originally requested although I did offer you some extra days if you required and I hope you can understand my position in this respect. I'm happy that circumstances have led to an amicable agreement on the date.


    In answer to your question, it appears that the deposit was not registered with a scheme as it should have been and, in light of this, I will of course return the deposit to you. If you can send me your account details I will return the £800 deposit asap.

    You have a 6 years time limit from the time the deposit was paid + 30 days to bring a case, so you can take your time to think about whether or not you want to bring a case or wait until you're better etc.

    English Law overrides what would be convenient for him. Seems as though - for whatever reasons - things have worked out.

    Personally, I wouldn't feel the need to persue any further claim for unrealted items - ie - the deposit matters have been ressolved without loss to you and clearly with no claim of deductions for damage.
    There is always scope for misinterpretation.

    If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

    Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.

    How generous...!

    Still, if you're happy with that - and it sounds like you could do without the stress - perhaps leave it at that. You would have another couple of years to take action from this point though.

    Best to you on your recovery.

    Dear All,
    I cannot repay you all for your kindness and help during a very difficult time. I came back to say that all went ok, we had an out of court settlement for the unpaid deposit, 1.5 times the deposit amount. Can I also add, that all the money was given to charity, I was never after it but simply could not accept the treatment I received.

    If anyone needs a sample draft of the out of court settlement letter do let me know.

    Thank you so much.

    Good to know, thanks for taking the time to update us.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

    Good all round:. Well done!
