Landlord Not Returning Deposit
Landlord Not Returning Deposit.
At the end of your notice period once your tenancy comes to an end your Landlord is required to return your deposit back within 10 days of you both agreeing how much is to be returned less any deductions if applicable.
If the amount is in dispute then you (The Tenant) would need to raise a dispute with the deposit protection agency with proofs to support your claim and they would be
able to help resolve it.
If the deposit was not protected we can help you file a claim in the courts for the non-protection of your deposit and claim back up to 3 times your deposit amount back.
If the court finds your Landlord has not protected your deposit, it can order them to either repay it to you, pay it into a TDP scheme’s bank account within 14 days for ongoing tenancies or order the Landlord to pay you up to 3 times the deposit amount within 14 days of making the order.
If you have been issued a section 21 eviction notice by your Landlord the court may decide that you won’t have to leave the property when the tenancy ends if your Landlord hasn’t used a TDP scheme when they should have.
