Do You Have a Deposit Dispute With Your Landlord?

Do You Have a Deposit Dispute With Your Landlord?

Moving out of rented property does not always go as smooth as we’d all like and it’s never great to have a deposit dispute with your landlord.

Whether they think you have violated the terms of the original agreement or are withholding your deposit unfairly, it could be an indication that they may have been unscrupulous with your money.

Landlords HAVE to protect your deposit within 30 of receiving it from you in one of the government approved schemes and if they fail to do so, you could be entitled to claim up to 3 times the original amount.

We work to help you to claim your deposit if it hasn’t been protected and it’s simple for you to do.

If we do discover that you have a claim for your tenancy deposit, we will work on your behalf to get you the right compensation back.

The Law

Landlords have an obligation to pay deposits received from Tenants into a deposit protection scheme.

The law states that every Landlord who takes a deposit from a Tenant has to protect that deposit by lodging it with one of 3 tenancy deposit protection schemes.

The basis for this requirement is to stop Landlords utilising a Tenants deposit monies as income elsewhere and to make it easier to obtain the return of your deposit when a Tenancy comes to an end.

The three schemes are:

The Claim

If a Landlord fails to lodge the deposit with one of the 3 tenancy protection schemes within 30 days of the date on which the deposit was provided by the Tenant the Landlord will be subject to a penalty.

The penalty is likely to be between 1-3 times the amount of deposit paid.

Landlords continue to ignore the law in this regard and to assist Tenants (we do not act for Landlords) we have a team of experienced lawyers operating on cases around the UK enforcing Tenants rights against Landlords and obtaining compensation on behalf of Tenants from Landlords who have failed to comply with their obligations.

This company are very good, very professional and helped me recover an outstanding debt. The solicitor they gave me was immaculate in his research and presentation. In all honesty, he made the opposition look third rate at best, and got me the result I deserved. If you were ever skeptical about using this kind of organisation....don't be. Can't say fairer than that. Very impressed.
