As a landlord or letting agent, the new requirements of the Localism Act 2012 will apply where any deposit is received from a tenant.

Unless these new tenancy deposit rules are complied with, the landlord, or the agent, faces financial penalties and a restriction in obtaining possession of their property.

We have already been prominent in dealing with a number of tenancy deposit disputes on behalf of landlords and acted for a successful party in the leading case (Vision Enterprises Limited (T/A Universal Estates) –v- Tiensia; Honeysuckle Properties –v- Fletcher).

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Complying with the requirements to register a tenancy deposit under the new rules
  • The provision of prescribed information
  • County Court proceedings issued by the tenants
  • The application of the new rules and tenancy deposit schemes
  • Possession and Section 21 Notices
