Tenancy Deposit

Where a landlord of an assured shorthold tenant accepts a deposit from a tenant, they must, within 30 days of receipt, protect it with a tenancy deposit scheme and provide the tenant with the prescribed information.

Where the landlord fails to do either of these, the tenant can make a claim for the return of the deposit plus up to 3 times the value of the deposit. Also, the landlord cannot serve a Notice Requiring Possession until the deposit has been returned to the tenant.

We can advise you on your expose to a claim and assist you to resolve the problem.
