Landlord Failed to Protect Your Tenancy Deposit?
Then Don’t Delay – Make Your Claim Today!
As an Assured Shorthold Tenant, the law is very much on your side when it comes to ensuring tenancy deposit protection scheme compliance.
From 6 April 2007, landlords in England and Wales were legally required to protect all Assured Shorthold Tenancy deposits in one of the three government approved tenancy deposit schemes.
The tenancy deposit legislation states that if your landlord fails to register your tenancy deposit with a authorised tenant deposit scheme within 30 days of receiving your deposit – or – if your landlord has failed to inform you where your deposit was registered within 30 days, you could be entitled to make a claim.
What’s more, if your claim is successful, then not only will you get your deposit back in full, but you will also be entitled to receive an additional financial “award” from the county court of between 1 – 3 times the value of the deposit you originally paid.
We should of course point out, that not all landlords who fall foul of the regulations are blatantly unscrupulous (though some clearly are). Some landlords are simply ignorant of their legal obligations, while others may inadvertently overlook their official responsibilities towards their tenants.
However, none of this is your problem.
The simple fact of the matter is this: whatever the reason for non-compliance, if your landlord has failed in his or her duty to protect your tenancy deposit, then you should claim back what is rightfully yours. Do not risk having unfair deductions from your tenancy deposit or even not getting your deposit back at all.
