    Or, better for tenant, 2 unprotected deposits!!! Get both back & sue for 3x both....

    Cheers!
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      I don't think that the new landlord ever receives the deposit in the sense of the deposit protection legislation.
      If there is a deposit, it was received by the previous landlord.

      Because the tenancy is assigned, I think that for this purpose the previous and new landlord are the same, they are the landlord of the tenancy.

      To me, this means that:
      - As said the new landlord, as the landlord, has received the deposit. Whether a transfer of money between him and the previous landlord has occurred is not relevant. If a new tenancy is granted he will have to make sure the deposit is protected in all cases.

      - If the deposit is already protected, then there is nothing to do. But of course the new landlord may want the protection to be transferred in his name.
