Just spoken to a Fusilier going through the final stages of redundancy Who has rented a property that is frankly a s*£t hole (I know the property and the tenants it has had). He rented it just by internet pics as he was stationed abroad. Usual bad property stuff. Worn carpets, leaky, heating not working, garden a mess. Etc. Wife giving him a hard time so he is not thinking straight and is looking to leave the property ASAP and just forgoing his deposit. Any suggestions for a plan of action? Does he have a resettlement officer who may be able to help get his deposit back or other redress? Or is he on his own now. If so what does he have to do regarding the law to get his deposit returned if he vacates early. I have put him in contact with reputable Property agents I use that will help him in the long run But walking off base on Monday into where he is now is not good.
