    Thanks for the advice and what I don't understand is why the case would still be valid if letters have been sent they want to resolve with me amicably?

        Update - As much as it loathed me I have returned the deposit of £500 in cash to the tenant and got a receipt from the tenant to prove it was done. Also the tenant is now back in contact stating they don't want to proceed with anything legal and its the solicitor pushing it to court.

        Any advice?

          The solicitor works for, and on behalf of the tenant.
          The tenant could stop the action today if they wanted to.

            I have had a copy of a letter previously that was sent to the solicitor asking to close the case but few months down the line I hear that I am in breach of injunction.
            Am I now covered in regards to any fines that may have been imposed for not protecting the deposit?

                I'd contact the solicitor each time the tenant makes contact informing them of the reasons the tenant gave for making contact.

                And get your own solicitor.
                There is always scope for misinterpretation.

                If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

                Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.

                  I wonder how the solicitor knew about the possible breach of the injunction???

                  Sadly, no, but you are free to serve a Sec 21 notice.

                    Sorry but I must reitterate that she DID provide all documents which were initially requested before both parties signed the lease. This new, rigid requirement for a utility bill only came a day before the agreed move-in date.

                    This is not a case of a prospective tenant having no paper trail....

                    My partner has recently signed a lease through a well known property agent in London.

                    The lease was also signed by the landlord. References from current + previous employer, landlord, etc, and proof of address were requested before signing, and provided.

                    Upon signing the lease...

                    Firstly, she already provided the previous lease, along with a document from the municipality of Amsterdam stating that she was registered as living there. I paid the bills as we were living together, and she has closed her Dutch bank account (as is required when you are no longer a resident). I'm sure...

                    No bank statements with the old address on? These are available freely from your online account, or previous utility bills, council tax bills etc. I find it difficult to accept that they are unable to provide something. I would have concerns if you were my prospective tenant. You need to provide the...

                    When you put it like that I'm more inclined to edge towards the S21 route regardless. As much as part of me feels some compassion for the guy and doesn't want to lump more stress on top of someone who appears to be struggling already, as has been said before, none of us are acting as a charity.

                    Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

                    Thank you.

                    My initial contact with the police was just a phone call to the local station. As I almost half expected they wouldn't give up much info, I didn't particularly push back when they said as much and I left it at that. A formal complaint might fill in a few blanks in the story but...

                    A back door way into finding out what did happen (or more info than you have now), is to ask for a callback from the local PCSO who covers the beat area where the tenant lives (go online and start a live chat), he or she will know far more about your tenant that a faceless comms operator at HQ or anyone...

                    Just because someone knocks on your door, even if it crescendos to them banging loudly on your door, it doesn’t mean you have to answer it or have to go and investigate.

                    If the tenant suffers from mental health issues and the police were sent round because someone thought the tenant’s...

                    From painful personal experience of this issue... You should formally contact the police, ask them why they broke the door down and ask for compensation. Their lawyer will then write to you with some information which may be useful for you to know (but not giving very much detail). I expect they'll...
