  • 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.

                I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

                You are also aware you are now liable to pay her a penalty of up three times the deposit value?.

                My experience of a drug addict is that they will leave with a financial offering.

              • Tips for making a good impression when meeting a landlord
                purpleangel
                Our potential new landlady has 'approved us in principle' but wants to meet us at the house as the final part in the referencing process. Beside the obvious such as look smart, tidy and professional and warn the kids to behave, any particular tips for making sure this last hurdle goes smoothly?

                Some of the above comments are crazy!. If they have aleady done their referencing and credit checks then they likely just want to meet you.

                As someone said above, they are trusting you with their very valuable asset.

                Hello,

                Tenancy finished a couple of months ago. The landlord withheld part of the deposit for a variety of reasons. As the tenant, I disputed those deductions as incorrect - they contradict the Checkout Report which was completed by an agent of the Landlord but that's besides the point....

                As the tenancy has finished you have no right to his address from agent.

                Have you spent £3 with land registry to get deeds of property & see who is listed as owner & what address?? (Landlord may not be owner... legal, no very uncommon...)
