    I rented out a house with two other people and none of us have a clue on how to get it back. I paid mine in cash and I still have my receipt that I got for it, so I should be okay, I hope. I didn't use a guarantor either, so the agency don't have my bank details either.

    None of us idiots know which scheme our deposits went to either. I plan to ask the agency directly when I get back to the area, but I'd like to know in advance since it's been on my mind a lot recently.

    Agency or directly to the landlord

    Thanks. I guess talking to the agency is my best bet. I've had zero contact with my landlord, so it can't/shouldn't be him.

    If it was protected with a deposit protection scheme at least one of you should have recieved an email at the start of the tenancy to confirm the money was protected and then another one when the money is ready to be released advising you to log onto the website of the protection scheme used. If no protection scheme is used then you can apply to the county court to get it back and they can award up to 3 times the amount protected to you as well.
