I imagine it will come in on one hand and go out with the other as a new deposit on a new rental, so I wouldn't mention it. If it is under £500 it would not trigger the windfall clause in any case.

Boyfriend as landlord is maybe pushing the definitions, unless you have a tenancy agreement and he holds the deposit in a scheme account as required by the regulations .... But, as I say, if it is under £500 it wouldn't trigger the windfall clause anyway
