Landlady with holding full deposit

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I moved in to current house to rent a room June1st 2011 No contract deposit paid rent £450 pcm + bills I am paid weekly this works out @£103.84 per week at this present time for 8 months and 1 week it would appear I am in a plus with regards t the rent and from what I can gather deposit can only be with held if one or more of the following applies

1/ Rent arrears

2/ Missing or taken items without permission

3/ Damage requiring major work to repair

none of which apply I was given notice on the 10th Jan I move out on the 111th February

My rent is above the tax free amount but is not declared as earnings

Any advice welcome

If landlady does live in house with you that makes you a lodger and yes should can ask you to move out for no apparant reason with 'reasonable notice'. One month seems reasonable since you pay rent monthly.

LL tax status is of no concern here.
