Tenancy Deposit “No Win, No Fee” Recovery Service

Many landlords are STILL failing to meet the requirements of the Tenancy Deposit Legislation, which includes protecting their tenants’ deposit into a ‘tenancy deposit scheme’.

Has your landlord failed to protect your deposit? If so, you could be awarded up to x3 of the deposit in compensation on top of your original deposit.

  • Your deposit must have been protected late (any time after the 30 day limit) or not at all
  • You must have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (other types of tenancy do not qualify)
  • You must have some proof of the deposit being paid
  • You must have photo ID and proof of current address
  • You must have consent and contact details of all tenants named on the AST
  • You must not have rent arrears
  • You must not have breached their AST contract i.e. leaving early
  • You must not have a valid counterclaim for the landlord such as arrears or property damage

If you check all the boxes, you can complete the claim form (by clicking on the link below), and your details will be checked over by a solicitor. The solicitor will then call you to discuss and decide whether to take the client on.

I still have a £700 (one month) deposit which has been tied up in a flat I left in South London in early 2016 - only just remembered it. My landlord had originally granted a two-year Lease mid-2012 to mid-2014, at that monthly rent, inclusive. Towards the end of the Lease period he telephoned me to say he was now planning to redevelop the property within the next two-year period, and therefore did not want me as a Sitting Tenant. Since the property would also be inconvenienced meantime by building works on the wide-ranging (all over his high street shop) conversion, he offered to roll over my rent at the existing rate, on condition I would be willing to move out at his behest. It was a gentlemen's agreement over the telephone, and since nothing financial changed I (possibly wrongly) saw no reason for any confirmatory paperwork > > I would now like to talk to someone about recovering my £700, and will of course give further details at that point.
