Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Are you in arrears at all? What type of tenancy do you have please?Alex
Who lives in the property?
Just you and thats it?
Ok - the Landlord can NOT evict you without a Court Order.
In fact you can sue the Landlord under Housing 2004 for not protecting the deposit and you can sue for x3 this amount.
But the Landlord can't evict you without a Court order and can't evict you before the tenancy ends.
Even then the Landlord must give you 2 months notice, called a S.21 notice.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Yes you can sue now or at the end when the deposit is due.
But to be clear, you are entitled to x3 the deposit if it has not been protected.
But in any event the Landlord can not take ANY step to evict you, unless the deposit has been protected.
Can I clarify anything for you? Alex
Yes, but not until the END of the fixed tenancy. Landlord can't increase rent either.
Does that clarify? Alex
Correct. You can always sue for x3 the amount even if its protected late.
