I have been advised by Shelter that as she did not protect my deposit by 30 days into the tenancy, if she wants to serve a section 21 on me , she has only 2 options open to her
She can offset the deposit against any arrears, which doesnt apply as there are no arrears
she can return my full deposit to me. Only then can she serve a valid Section 21.
Is this information incorrect?
Thankyou for that. One last thing if I may? My landlord and her agent have been unreasonable regarding access for viewings for prospective buyers.
I have asked them not to show the house when I am not home and have offered access any afternoon after 2pm and also Sunday open house viewings for a 2 hour period.
But they have insisted on coming into the property when I am out and my children are at school and say they dont need my permission.
Can they do this, especially considering I am not actually under notice to vacate due to the section 21 being invalid?
