Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
I am asking a few things here. Firstly what do I do about the deposit scheme thing, is this gonna be ok that I have only just done it now ?
Secondly, if the deposit is ok, then can I serve the section 21
thirdly does the tenant have cause to create an official problem for us over the deposit matter ?
I just want to make sure I do this properly as time is running out before the 2 month notice period will be out.
Can you also clarify if when I serve the Notice 21, I also give the details of the secure deposit scheme and the prescribed information form at the same time and if this is acceptable.
The tenant will not want to sign them just to be awkward, so is that ok to give all those papers without his signature ?
So the worst that can happen is we pay him back 3 x the deposit amount ??
Also he does not get that deposit just because he has asked for it does he, he has to wait until the end of the tenancy doesnt he ?? As the deposit is now secured although it was late ??
Can you clarify again these points please.
