    Take some photos and if you have a friend in the flat get them to take some as well. Its just about covering your back. If you have to leave the keys somewhere visible, then do so sensibly and take a date stamped photo plus get someone to confirm it just in case. No it wont make any difference contacting them tomorrow. the other flatmates might know. She may not even have put it in a scheme as she is required to do in viortually all situations, but you cna leave that for another day. I wouldnt worry really she is just trying it on, just take precautions. Its a good lesson to learn for dealing with future LL's.

    Ahhhh damn I forgot to take photos!!! I only had a few hours to clean everything and move out, was a mad rush for my train...

    She hasn't contacted me about paying anything today so I'm assuming she's giving me until midnight and then will chase it up some point next week. I'm going to call shelter in a few mins just to explain the situation and see what they say so I can tell her I've spoken to them if she contacts me again or if there's a dispute about the deposit. Still need to submit a complaint to the letting agency too... aagh
