    My landlady refused to pay my deposit back so I took her to money claim I won the case then she didn't respond so I done the enforsing judgement and now Ive got the letter fro the bailiff telling me that they met her and they couldn't do anything. So now I don't know what can I do? Can some one help me please.

    Seek advice from your local MP - normally hold monthly surgery for local residents.

      I presume you have her bank account details? Or can get them? (Your bank will tell you where rent cheques went to).

      Look at third party debt orders. Effectively, it will freeze your landlords bank account on a certain day.
      Depending on what is in there, the bank will be ordered to pay you your judgement, the bailiffs fees, and the cost of the TPDO. The bank will also charge the landlady an admin fee of iro £50 - but they get theirs before you get paid

      The whole process will take a couple of months because there will need to be a hearing - but it's a formality.

        maybe you are right but she can change her bank and you said it can take couple months i am dealing with her over 2 years and about the bank i know the bank but not the details.

          It may be possible to get a charging order attached to the property or to her home address.

          The Judge will decide if the debt is proportional to the property value and if there is a better way to enforce. So you need to send the bailiffs letter saying they couldn't do anything and also explain that you do not know her bank details.

            Well you can request an 'order to provide information'. She will be ordered to attend court and a clerk will ask her a series of standard questions (and any you submit) about things like income, bank accounts, employment etc. If she fails to attend, she gets a few chances but could end up in prison.

            The fee for the questioning is (iirc) £50 but you have to hand the order to the judgement debtor personally - or you can pay £100 for the bailiffs to do it. It is not acceptable to post it.

                If she doesn't show up, they will re-schedule. If she doesn't attend the re-scheduled one they will send bailiffs round to escort her to the next one. If she still refuses to attend she can be imprisoned.

                  This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
                  Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.

                  OP - yes do send the confirmation email from the DPS to the solicitor for the tenants. That should stop proceedings but did you give them the PI and How to Rent details + gas certificate. In future make tenants sign a receipt to say they received these items - I do it on move in day and leave them...

                  JK - there are *some* upsides of taking a deposit. The main two for me:
                  1) Regardless of what it can feel like on here, the majority of tenants do not know they can play the system in this way.
                  2) There is something to be said for the mindset of a tenant who has something "invested"...

                  I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

                  I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

                  The ICO should be fining landlords for not registering as data processors - they're not.

                  The maximum amount of personal data held by landlords and agents arises out of tenant referencing, and, if that were to be destroyed after a couple of months, most landlords would arguably be pretty...

                  I'm afraid this rant won't help you much o/p, but:

                  STILL!? Still landlords are giving tenants a way to wheedle thousands out of them for no good reason?

                  I have come to the conclusion this whole deposit protection nonsense is a government sponsored scam. There is barely any...

                  They are probably claiming that you didn't protect the deposit and give them the Prescribed Information document, both of which you are required to do within 30 days of receipt of the deposit.

                  If you didn't do both things to the appropriate deadline, you didn't protect the deposit correctly....

                  That being said, I don't think it will have much impact on landlords:



                  I don't think that'll be the case. References are legitimate and widespread.

                  i need some advise on my situation in regards to this flat offered to me and my partner. We viewed a flat which was in an old office block which had been converted into service apartments and then refurbished into flats.

                  You do not have to own a place to be the Landlord. Suspect they rent from owner (their Landlord), they then rent (as your Landlord) to you.

                  Doubt there's any chance of getting proper tenancy from them. You could sign licence, move in, then try and get rights as an AST Tenant (eg sue for...
