Good evening, well if they have no evidence it was protected and your tenancy is an AST then they will be foolish to not try to regularise their situation. A clever landlord would protect it now and try to mitigate their loss because they can then appeal to the judge to try and reduce the penalty from x3. If the inspection report contained information you didn’t agree with then you did right by not signing it. You will at some point have to decide once it’s clear there is no certificate whether you are making a claim through the court for the x3 the value of your deposit compensation. all the best
