Earlier this year I moved to Spain for 6 months as part of a work project. While there, I stayed in a rented apartment, which my company paid for. However, I had to pay for the security deposit out of my own money as that was my responsibility.
I've since moved back to the UK and have been repeatedly ignored by my ex-landlord regarding the repayment of the deposit. They've not claimed any repair or redecoration costs (the apartment was cleaner when I left it than when I moved in), they've just ignored the issue entirely in subsequent emails with them.
I feel like I may be chasing a lost cause here as I'm not even in the same country anymore, and land lords the world over seem to get away with screwing tenants out of money. Anyway, does any body have any experience with recovering these costs in a similar situation, particularly Spain?
I should note, I have a signed receipt and also an online record of the money transfer. I may try and get my company to intervene on my behalf if I can, but is there anything else I can try first?
