Can I use part of deposit for rent arrears

Questions & AnswersCategory: General QuestionsCan I use part of deposit for rent arrears
sim asked 2 years ago

My tenant gave 4 weeks notice in mid May however they vacated end of May. They still owe two weeks rent and told me they would pay this by the 10th June which breaches their tenancy agreement(payments should be received by the 1st of each month).
Can I use part of their deposit to cover the rent arrears and can I also deny them access( maybe change the locks) as they have left taking all their possessions?
