    x3 deposit rule

    Is there a statute of limitations on how long the tenant has after they have moved out of the property to use the x 3 rule on a deposit that was not logged?

    Six years.
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      And it is the 1-3x deposit penalty; no guarantee to get 3x, and if deposit was returned in full, judge may be lenient!

        When did the tenancy end? If it was before April 2012, then the T cannot claim due to the judgment in Hashemi v Gladehurst in 2011. A T cannot claim after the tenancy has ended.

        However, in April this year, deposit law was amended to close this loophole.

          What is your source?

          Edit:
          Could be the Limitation Act 1980, s.9:
          9 Time limit for actions for sums recoverable by statute.

          (1)An action to recover any sum recoverable by virtue of any enactment shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.

            However, even the Limitations Act can be extended. For example if the tenants knowledge of the harm was not apparent for an extended period beyond the 6 years they may still be able to claim.
