Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How many other people are living there? Do they know each other?Does the Landlord live there too?
What is it you want to achieve?
No - he can't. The AST is 6 months so he can only ask you to leave at the END of that period.
Even then he must give you 2 months notice.
Further he must get a Court order to evict you. Bearing in mind he didnt protect the deposit the he cant take any step to evict you.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
He cant take ANY step to evict you without protecting the deposit.
Even if he wanted to evict you for rent arrears he would have to be at least 8 weeks late rent before he could do this.
In any event he can not take any step to evict you if the deposit has not been protected
Does that clarify?
No, he cant evict you. You need to be £900 late
