Assuming the deposit was protected within 30 days of you paying it, and you were provided with evidence of that direct from the scheme, it would mean your landlord has followed the legislation and you wouldn’t have a case.
If you are still living in the property it is important you contact the scheme holding the deposit & ensure you have all the necessary information to get the deposit back when you move out.
It is also important to confirm the deposit was registered within 30 days of you paying it. If your deposit was protected more than 30 days after you paid it, your landlord has breached the strict guidelines that surround how deposits should be held.
The quickest way to find out is to phone the scheme directly.
I think Tenant Angels are great and they helped me with a successful claim. I can’t recommend them enough in fighting for tenants rights against unscrupulous landlords/ landladys. The landlord have rights and responsibilities as well as the tenant and ALL tenants should be made aware of their rights in terms of their deposits. It’s your money not your landlords and if they pocket it instead of placing it in a bond scheme it is paramount to theft. Tenant Angels help you get back what is rightfully and legally yours. Tenant Angels- KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK for tenants rights.
can’t recommend this company more. When I moved out of my rented accommodation I realised that my letting agency had failed to protect my extra damage deposit, paid when I got my dog. They were refusing to give it back to me and unaware of my legal rights I contacted Tenant Angels. It was the best thing I could have done. They talked me through step by step what actions I could take and they put me in contact with a solicitor who has just settled my case. Not only did I receive the damage deposit but I was also greatly compensated for my time and stress. Thank you so much Tenant Angels! - Grace Ann Carter
Great company! Called up with a query and I have been given solid advice on how to proceed with recovering my deposit. Its a sigh of relief to have a company working to help you get your money back, rather than take it off you. - Luke Edge
