    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.

                Hi there,

                I have recently found out the the agent (working for the landlord) has not protected my deposit paid Summer 2017 for a 6 month tenancy. The tenancy is up in 2 weeks and I have been asked if I want to renew which I would like to do as I wish to stay in the property.

                ...

                I would like to stay at the property and renew for a further year. Should I sign a new AST or just let the tenancy go to a periodic one?

                I am worried when I eventually come to leave the property say in one years time that the LA / LL will try and find ways to deduct money from the deposit,...

                I am now living in a one bed flat owned by a housing association, for the past year the communal boilers that provide hot water and heating to all flats and the sheltered housing block has been frequently faulty leaving us without hot water or heating.

                Are you a tenant? If so, same landlord?

                Is their landlord the freeholder?

                Hi,

                I have a quick question to ask.
                Is it generally acceptable to sign a tenancy agreement in name of one's business and make rent payments via a business account?

                The idea here is that part of the rented house would work as a home office, therefore I would like the payments...

                The rationale is that the occupant has a main residence elsewhere (usually mummy's house) and is renting a flat near temporary work as lodging, which can be a legitimate business expense.

                Its nothing to do with having a home office....

                Hi,
                looking for some practical advice here, first post.I shall try to hit the main points and be brief.
                I have been renting my house to a couple whilst I have been out of the UK with a private rental contract, visiting the house once a year. They have been renting for 10 years , on a one...

                This will cause you the biggest problem (lack of certification).

                I would suggest based on what I have read that:

                -they have no basis on which to be reimbursed for the work they did without permission (and maybe with the expectation they would be living there for many years,...
