TDS not paid by landlord. Argues it was bond, it was not.
He has now paid it out of his own money. TDS dispute part of court case.
Property Ombudsman has been involved and part of his finding is that landlord is responsible. But almost accepts it may be a bond without proof. I swear I saw the original tenancy agreement with the deposit paid £280 (cash) at side to inform any one.
It would be included in the written contract details as to how it was paid? Wouldn't it.
local council bonds org has wrapped up as a charity in 2009. original landlord died and I think orginal estate agent gone, and would they keep such old documentation?
all that is sorted in middle of court case, liability and failure already identified, except proof it was cash not bond.
thought it would state on contract when I paid it in, I swear I saw it on something £280 (cash)
trying to find original proof it was cash. is it not usually stipulated on contract? I cannot find original,
