Had a tenant that vanished one day, he did not give notice, he left oweing rent and there was some damage to the property. Have since found him and sent him bill for outstanding monies rent/damage which is twice as much as his deposit which i have kept. He have now stated that he will pay the balance less the deposit.

The question I have is can I keep his deposit money seperate because he left with no notice or in law do I have to deduct the deposit from the balance.
