Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.
You need to write a letter, set out your losses and request compensation of x3 the deposit within 30 days or say you will go to Court. This is called a pre-action protocol letter of claim. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy. You must give 30 days warning before going to Court.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can do this by completing form N208: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n208-claim-form-cpr-part-8 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.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
You can claim x3
Does that clarify?
Sadly its not my area of law.
You can post a new question and a colleague will pick it up
Email is fine, but it needs to be a proper S.21 notice.
If he has not protected the deposit then the notice isn't valid.
Don't move. The S,21 is not valid.
The deposit must be under the name and address of the rental, - yes
Does that assist?
Ok - just sue for damages then.
Does that help?
You can claim x3 the deposit.
That is because it was not protected.
You can also sue for not doing repairs, but the fact you moved out harms your case.
Unless you have evidence of the disrepair that element will fail.
But you can claim for x3 the depositDoes that assist?
I was just following up to see if there is anything else I can assist you with today? If so, just let me know.
If not, then I am happy to have been able to assist you.
