If they refuse to pay you can bring a claim in the Disputes Tribunal. They would need to explain properly why they dispute this, and you can raise matters such as their neglect of maintenance, which is likely the real problem. If you get an award for your bill, you can then place a charging order on the property which must be paid before they can sell.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
