As a student I know a lot of issues are with landlords who are renting out accommodation but they don't actually own the properties.

When it comes to getting the deposit back from the landlords when the rental period is up, they say that they have to collect it from the home owners, however they cannot get in touch with the owners of the property for whatever reason.

This has happened to me and to students nationwide.

There are ways of chasing the property owner. Was somebody else collecting the rent i.e. a letting agent?  Who managed the property when you were renting?  How to get your deposit back all depends on what arrangements were in place.  Also, just to confirm was this in England and Wales or Scotland or Northern Ireland?

The rent was collected through a letting agent that managed the property for the home owner.

It was in England with a total of 4 students occupying the property
