Not as yet. It was paid to my husband and I was on maternity leave at the time so wasn't in a position finically to pay the £1000 myself. I was planning to start a new tenancy agreement and deposit it at that time, but that would requires the tenants agreement. Should I register it now?
I have no problem whatsoever with returning the deposit before serving section 21 as she has been a good tenant and is highly unlikely to do purposeful damage now. Are you saying that if we return the deposit we can serve section 21? I'll look into s.8., but actually I don't want to move back to London, I want to sell.
