Represent Law has settled a s.214(4) deposit protection claim under the Housing Act 2004 pre-trail for £6,000.
The client was a joint tenant at a property in London and paid a join tenancy deposit which was not protected properly in a government scheme for three tenancies. The joint tenant did not agree to be a claimant hence was added to a party as a defendant pursuant to Civil Procedure Rule 19.3(2).
Following issuing proceedings in the county court, the landlord and agent settled the claim pre-trial for £6,000 plus costs.
This is a solid result and Represent Law has been privileged to help our client achieve an equitable settlement in this claim.
