Just thought I share this with everyone out there.

My tenant tried to sue me for 3 times the deposit amount for failing to protect their deposit.

I defended the claim by referencing the Court of Appeal case, Honeysuckle Properties vs Others, which the RLA supported

After receiving the defence and quaking in their boots about their already over spent legal fees, they backed out of the claim. Result!

Thanks RLA.
