Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear, has he put it up for sale?
Ok, has it been sold yet?
OK - then that is ok. Just because it is on the market does not mean you have to leave.
It may be that it takes months to sell, or even if it is sold the property transaction is completed by the time your tenancy ends
Just because it is up for sale, does not mean you can leave.
But if the property is actually sold and completed, then you can get your bond back.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund of your deposit within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Yes. You can issue proceedings against your Landlord. can you see how to do it above?
