Tenants vacated 4 1/2 months into 12 month AST.
They paid 6 months rent at start of tenancy and 6 weeks rent is held as deposit by DPS.
Without their agreement, will I be able to obtain the deposit from DPS to offset rent owed?
I have obtained a forwarding address which is in USA.
Their previous address was in USA and I have a next of kin address in UK - he is British, she is American.
Is it possible for me to pursue them through the Small Claims Court?
If not, do I have any other options?
