hi just wanted to know what happens when you serve a eviction notice and there was no deposit taken !
Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

Was there genuinely no deposit?

So they paid no more than one months rent in advance upon moving in?

No all they paid was one month for rent as the tenants was nown to the landlords


There's no need to worry about that.

If you haven't received a deposit then none can be protected and there is no obligation to do so. The obligation only arises if a deposit is taken.

Its probably as well to explain that on the N5 form though. You do not want the court to be confused in any way.

But, in principle, if no deposit was taken then your S21 notice is valid if you serve it without protection.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

Thanks so i just write on the side of the form no deposit taken and what form do i serve for eviction wen theres no deposit taken

You use the same forms.

S21 notice or S8 or whatever you are relying on and then if they refuse to go the N5 form.

Sorry Jo


How many copy's of the paper work i.e contract , section 21 and N5 form do i have to send to the court.

Always send at least three and better four.


One for the defendant, one for the court file and one for the judge.


And, of course, keep one for yourself

Thank you again

No problem

All the best
