I have been living in a shared house in London at some point. When I left (more than a year ago), the landlord (an agency) told me he would pay me back my deposit shortly. As they still have not done it, I googled online and found out that they actually never protected the deposit. So I followed the guidlines at
and sent them a letter before action 2 months ago to which they never answered. So now I'd like to take it to court, so I found:
From there, I picked the "Housing possession" category. The problem is that I emailed more than 5 of them and none of them answered me but one which told me to make a money claim (which was clearly inappropriate according to money claim website).
The problem is that I'm currently abroad (until end of March or even June) and cannot go there in person.
Would you have in mind a local court (anywhere in London) which deals with deposit claims? Also, would you know if it is possible to start the process (ie make the claim, pay the fees online)?
Thank you for you advice. Franck
