- Have you rented a property at any time since 2012?
- Did you pay a deposit?
- Was the deposit correctly protected as required by law?
When a Landlord receives a deposit from a Tenant in relation to an Assured Shorthold Tenancy, then they must deal with the deposit in a specific way:
Firstly, within 30 days of receipt of the deposit, the Landlord must protect the deposit within one of three government-backed schemes.· Secondly, the Landlord must provide the Tenant with the required prescribed information and a scheme leaflet confirming the whereabouts of the deposit.
If this process is not correctly followed the Tenant has a claim worth up to three times the value of the Deposit against the Landlord.
If you believe that your tenancy deposit was not protected as required by law, contact Widnes Solicitors.
