Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, in respect of the deposit, the LL registered it:

Late (in excess of 2 months) so well outside the 30 days,

And mis-stated the date he received it,

And failed to register an interested party,

Failed to provide the certificate & PI to tenants within required time,

Failed to provide the certificate &PI to interested party at all.

Do you know, with current court claims what a judge may typically award bearing in mind it can be between 1 and 3 times?

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
I would claim x3
That is because the judge can always award lower than your claim but never higher than the claim.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
