    Deposit Single Claim

    I have put in a single claim for the deposit. On the declaration I based my argument against the fact that T didn't pay a month rent. There are other arrears but the deposit doesn't cover all of it. I don't have the forwarding address. T is refusing the claim and ADR will come into effect. When sending evidence should I include all the arrears or just concentrate on the one month rent?

    Send everything so that if you decide to go to court later there are copies on record.
    If the amount owed is more than the deposit & you want it all back go straight to court (if it's worth it obv)
    Sending it all should also guarantee you get the full deposit (if this was more than the rent)
    Also send in copies of your bank income statements or a speadsheet rent schedule stating date of commencement and each subsequent rent date and payment and dates T fell into arrears and how many days late it is.
    Basically cover yourself.
    Good luck


      Thanks I will send everything. But can't I also say that I don't want to use the ADR service (What happens if one party does not agree to use the ADR service? -

      My claim is higher than the deposit itself. Can't I ask them to provide the tenants address? Or if I do use ADR won't they have to give me his address?

        I have issued multiple CCJs. Three of them are still unpaid.

        I have also issued Third Party Debt Order which was successful.

        But the ex T. still owes me money and more claims are to be issued .

        I have asked for the deposit but the ex....

        Thanks to Thatcher's 1988 Housing Act a tenancy continues, monthly periodic, if tenant remains in occupation.

        Unless evicting tenants through court prior you / agent cannot (legally impossible to) prevent this.

        I have a large portfolio, I got tired of spending ours on the phone each week managing utilities between tenancies. I found a utility company that gave me a dedicated account team. I simply email the tenancy change and it gets sorted. However, there are a few challenges they are struggling to overcome,...

        I beg to differ. From experience it was slum landlords not sorting out the property by means of fixing penetrating damp along with missing roof tiles for years. Black mould covering a whole wall, damaged stairs that was just clipped back together under the stair case along with collapsing kitchen ceiling...

        We have a nice couple living in our one bed flat. It's an old building with thick, uninsulated walls. We've owned it for 10 years, and in that time had 1 tenant who managed to cover the place with mould due to how she was living in it, everyone else since has been absolutely fine.

        I visited...

      • Dispute deposit based on damage that landlord didn't repair?
        by kankan
        Hello everyone,

        After signing the contract, but before moving in, the flat suffered some flood damage. 3 rooms needed repainting because of water stains and paint falling off.
        We were promised that this will be taken care of after moving in. We followed up several times, but the repairs...

        This is why I think the current letting agents are not very good! All I asked the letting agents was to make sure the tenancy ends on the last day as per the contract and not to extend it....
