Hello,I am sorry to learn of your situation.I am a Qualified Solicitor with over 19 Years of experience in the UK.How much was your Deposit?
Can you explain how you have calculated £6,600?
I did not offer you a call was the JustAnswer System.
The law states "up to 3 times" the Deposit.. but you could be awarded as little as £1,100 and if your Landlord puts forward a reasonable Part 36 Offer, say of £2,500 and you only get £2200 award, you may win the case, but have not be the Landlords offer (by £300), So have to pay the Landlords Costs 21 days from the date of the offer, which could be several Thousand Pounds. So, unfortunately, it's not just a Yes or no Answer.
I take Landlords to Court routinely on Tenancy Deposit Claims, sadly, it's not far from straight forward, that is why I asked how you were calculating the amount. Can I assist you any further?
OK, so they have form for this type of Breach.
If you do not agree with the Terms of Settlement do not sign them, if the Judge considers the terms to be Unfair, the Judge should not hold it against you subject to you presenting your case properly. I would push them as much as they can, if they are not taking you seriously, you could always get a "No Win, No Fee Solicitor" to help. Let the Solicitor do the hard work for around 25% of the compensation. But it's worth it as the Court action in this case is far from straight forward.
I trust that assists.
