    Upon asking for my deposit from my student let the estate agents are saying they won't refund it until I can prove that no council tax is owed. :confused:

    Is this a request that has been asked to anyone else? I have a suspicion it is a delaying tactic and I won't see my money until the next academic year, if at all.

    Thanks

    It's none of their business whether or not you owe council tax. I've only dealt with private landlords and not been asked.

    Doesn't sound right to me tbh. Check with CAB.

    They're attempting to pull a fast one. Just show them proof that you're a full time student (ie your student id) as proof that no CT is owed. If they still don't give it back, remember that they must by law have protected your deposit, and that each of the deposit protection schemes has a process you can go through to reclaim your deposit
