Dear Patrick Again more variations of the truth from your company. If you check your records I vacated the property on the 19th May the tenancy ended on the 31st when the keys were returned. I can provide email evidence to the before mentioned if you require. The deposit was returned on the 21st June and only after I was forced to raise a dispute with the TDS and several emails to your company. I would also like to point out that no extra days were given the keys were returned to your office ...
