Moving from a rental property

Im in the middle of moving from a rented flat to a rented house. My current landlord is a complete arsehole and I can't wait to get out of there, but he's expecting 2 weeks rent before I leave!!! He has £400 deposit which I highly doubt he'll give me back anyway so what kind of come back can I expect if I just dissapear without paying the 2 weeks???

    Hello mate!

    I am also a landlord but have never withheld a deposit.

    It is being made harder for landlords to do so nowadays.

    However your landlord is a kn0b so to answer your question:

    He may well live with the fact he is keeping your deposit and forget.

    He could take you to a small claims court, you may get a county court judgment.

    Or he might send the boys around.

    I would ask him where you stand and tell him you will pay outstanding rent once you have handed back property.

    If that dont work and he is obviously being a kn0b then maybe just do one!

    Stu!

    I have heard of some pretty dire agencies also.

    Some see the deposit as theyres to keep regardless.

    My mate rented a flat as he was getting divorced.

    He never stayed, not one night, only used it as a mailing address.

    They still tried to keep his deposit.

    Some are right shysters!

    sometimes the deposit is keep if u break furniture etc.

    it is so hard to find unfurnished properties, except from local council.
