    Going to court against my landlord for 3 issues

    Dear people,
    I have a query regarding going to court against my landlord for 3 issues. Firstly, he is refusing the return my deposit and after threatening him with letters he just paid half of it despite giving me a deadline. Secondly, I have realised he has not protected in Deposit protection scheme and thirdly we have been living with damage in the property for almost a year given he said he would fix it but he didn't until we have moved out. Now i have done all the particulars by sending him notice letter giving him certain time to return our deposit but haven't heard anything back from him. So I have decided to take him to court and been having certain questions about filling up N208 form as I need to know exact scope interpretations to be able to put in the form for all 2 issues. Could some one upload theirs or help me with the scopes. Also wanted to know how would you pay the court fee as in my case i am claiming for all 3 issues and wouldn't know how much amount actually the court will rule in my favour plus do i send my evidence with the claim form or should i send the claim form then they will ask me for my evidence. Please keep me posted.

      Six years from the date when the deposit should had been protected.

              ......my post also got moved my the moderator because I originally asked the question of esotehric and not GG2.

              It makes things a bit confusing.

                Hello

                I live in a building that has 2 flats. The entrance to our building has a barred gate. My neighbour rents out her flat through a letting agency. My neighbour's tenant started chaining her bike to the gate outside and I wonder whether anyone knows whether this is a health and safety...

                From what I see, this is an obstruction to your "Right to free and unobstructed access to your property"
                If it was me, I would pivot the bike ( as it's chained to the rails, ) so that the bike is behind the dustbin.
                Dust bin Hard against the bike.

              • Tenancy renewal - no interim Council Tax liability?
                bagus
                I understand that the Landlord is liable for Council Tax on the last day of a tenancy, even if a new tenancy commences the following day, because it is deemed that someone other that the outgoing or incoming Tenants could potentially stay in the property overnight (which is spurious and improbable)....

                Legal time is not the same as real time.
                Things don't just happen at the same time, they happen in a sequence at the same time.

                It doesn't matter in the insurance policy example, but it does in a complex series of transactions (like selling a house).

                However, I have to...

                I get the impression that certain companies push clients down the s8 route to garner fees from court appearances, rather than suggesting an easier diy s21 eviction. Do some reading here about s21 before giving a lawyer a payday, IIWY.

                It;s not possible to know whether it is a health and safety issue just from the photograph, as we cannot see whether or not you would already have reached a place of safety on the far side of the gate.

                It is a trespass against the owner of the gate and against the owner of the road, and...
