Demand for repayment of rent deposit

Use this letter to demand that your landlord repay your deposit. The letter contains an option dealing with whether your deposit has been protected under a deposit protection scheme. If the landlord does not respond to this letter, it will warn that you will use the scheme's alternative dispute resolution scheme or take the matter to court. Before taking the matter to court, it is important that you send this letter or else the court may decide that you have acted unreasonably which could result in you not getting your costs of a claim. This document can be used for tenancies in England and Wales and Northern Ireland only.
