Landlord kept my deposit

Declan, Can your legal expert give some advice on landlords holding on to rental deposits. I moved out of a house last January and the landlord has kept my deposit, for ridiculous reasons. There is no more communication from the guy I rented from. I recently found out I can go to the Tenancy Board and fight my case. What should I do and what kind of success can I expect?

This Listener will have to wait at least a year for a hearing or resolution because the Private Residential Tenancies’ Board www.prtb.ie is hopelessly under staffed and over worked to breaking point.

Contact Threshold, the tenants’ representative organisation to see if the dispute resolution process can be speeded up. www.threshold.ie

The issues raised in the answer to this NewsTalk listener's question are dealt with in a general way as can only be the case on live radio. Before relying on the advice given in this answer, whether you heard the broadcast or are for the first time reading the issues here please do not rely on the broad advice given. For a detailed professional opinion please consult a qualified legal advisor and for further details read our disclaimer on the Home Page.
