£3,000 Deposit Protection Claim For Tenant In Wolverhampton

Our client, rented a property in Wolverhampton from July 2022 through to November 2023. They paid a deposit of £750.00 on an initial term of 12-months which then became a periodic tenancy (rolling). There were no arrears at the property and the house was occupied peacefully throughout.

Like many, many other cases before it, this all started with unfair tenancy deposit deductions. Our client reached out to us with the aim of understanding their rights and ultimately, the return of their £750.00 deposit.

On occasion, if a tenancy deposit and the amount due isn’t specifically listed in the tenancy agreement, it can be difficult to recoup. Fortunately, our client had bank statements and some communication between them and the landlord that not only referenced the deposit requirement prior to moving in, but statements also proved the amount paid and when.

Checks of the 3 government-approved deposit protection schemes revealed that the deposit had not been protected which meant that our client had a case and the landlord didn’t have a leg to stand on.

Tenant Angels and our partner solicitor was able to secure an out of court settlement of £2,250, plus the full return of our client’s deposit of £750.00, totalling a claim of £3,000*.
