Deposit dispute

The agent emailed me the offer with the usual details; monthly rental,start of tenency agreement, length of tenancy, name of tenant, in this case a company etc. on 5th February.

The offer letter stated that the background checks would take 2-4 days to complete and that I would be informed of the outcome. This didnt happen.

I guess that I should have chased them for this information!!

The tenants moved in on the 15th February and as of today, 4th March, I have had no emailed copy of the Tenancy Agreement nor has the deposit arrived in my bank account. I am aware that the deposit has to be lodged with a DPS within 21 days of commencement date but how Im supposed to do this I dont know!

The initial months deposit paid the agents fees.

What can I do about this?
