Represent Law has obtained a pre-trial settlement in a deposit protection claim for £5,780 today (being £3,500 for the claim and £2,280 for costs).
The landlord had not protected the tenant's deposit claiming that the deposit was an advance rent. Analysis of the rent payments and the Claimant's tenancy agreement showed that a deposit had in fact been paid which required protecting in accordance with the deposit protection provisions set out in the Housing Act 2004.
This is another great result and we are delighted to have helped our client obtain the return of this deposit in addition to two deposit protection penalties.
