    Okay, so I handed my inventory a month late and my accommodation people didn't say anything.
    But now they're refusing to give my deposit back because it was meant to be handed in within 2 days of me moving in.
    Can they do this?

    As far as I can see from this http://england.shelter.org.uk/get_ad...nancy_deposits

    They can only deduct to cover the cost of any damage to the property that goes beyond fair wear and tear or cleaning costs if you didn't leave the property as clean as it was when your tenancy started.

    You should have an email from the tenancy deposit scheme your deposit was placed with offering you the chance to dispute the amount if the property company won't budge. If they didn't protect it you can claim for 3x the amount in a county court.
