    The deposit was how much?

    I don't know how to claim for it though, so here are my questions:
    https://forums.landlordzone.co.uk/fo...55#post1009255

    Would they be fined for both of the tenancies or just once?
    There's no binding authority on the matter, but it is generally believed that liability is per tenancy, though of course the defense will try to argue otherwise.

    How do I know which amount to pay for costs if I don't know how much of a penalty the courts might award?
    £308 "non-money claims" in the county court.

    It's not a moneyclaim, don't let an admin staff at the court tell you otherwise if they try.

    Does it have to be through the county court? I can't just use MCOL, can I?
    MCOL is county court.... But if what you're asking is whether you can do it via a moneyclaim, the proper answer is no. People try, some get away with it, others don't. Your money (the issue fee), up to you.

    Sorry - the whole courts thing confuses me.
    Then instruct a solicitor to make the claim for you instead of trying to DIY it yourself.

    No PI for original or renewal AST.

    We didn't receive PI for our last property and are looking into taking the LL to court for it.
    we didn't receive any for the original AST or the renewal.

    The deposit was £2630 and we are still waiting for DPS to finish adjudicating on it, but expect to get it back as the LL didn't do their evidence properly or point to any specific problems.

    I don't know how to claim for it though, so here are my questions:

    Would they be fined for both of the tenancies or just once?

    Thanks for reading.

    I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

    We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

    My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

    What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

    Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

    I humbly note...

    The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

    The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

    I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

    In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

    IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.

    What you are proposing would breach your mortgage terms and possibly result in place being repo'd....
