Represent Law is delighted to have achieved a settlement of a s.214(4) deposit protection claim for the maximum amount possible pre-issue.
The tenant paid her landlord a deposit of £1,000 which was not protected in accordance with the provisions of s.213(3) and s.213(6) of the Housing Act 2004 which requires tenancy deposits to be protected in a government deposit protection scheme and for the Prescribed Information to be given to the tenant within 30 days of paying the deposit.
In this case the landlord didn't protect the deposit at all for two tenancies and failed to return the tenant's deposit. The claim settled for 3x the deposit for each of two tenancies, the return of the deposit plus interest.
This is another fantastic result for our client.
