    They have to.
    That is what the law says.

      I think the point was that it's very unlikely the court would award the maximum in practice for a deposit protected 5 days late.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        They CAN award up to 3x, but are v unlikely to in the case on the basis of what we've been told.

        But in Scotland, 3x is I think quite common.

          I think the point here is; they MUST award at least 1x the deposit value, at which point it wasn't worth it for the LL for £150 in repairs.

          Don't do it,.let them walk imo.

            There's no guarantee that they won't later sue for a penalty anyway. However, I agree that its sometimes best to let sleeping dogs lie.

              I think you do not understand what "up to 3x" means.

              It does not mean "exactly 3 x"; it means "any amount 3x or less".

                I always meant any amount up to 3x. Have a degree in sums, but still get things rong.

                  Me too. Probably why I'm a pedantic bastard.

                  Or possibly because I'm a pedantic bastard.
