IN response to “Council tackle Landlords” (Saturday January 18, 2014).

Welcome news indeed. Here are two of my personal experiences.

1) My landlord kept my full deposit of more than £700 even though the property was in a much better shape than when I first moved in. The previous tenant didn’t get her deposit back either.

2) My daughter and four other girls rented a house while at BH Uni. By the time they left, the property was not damaged (I am a witness of that) and yet, the landlord kept money back from each girls deposit which amounted to about £1,000 (not a bad revenue).
