I have established that the deposit was not properly reprotected when a joint AST I had with my partner ended and a new sole tenancy arose under my name only. There is no valid prescribed information for my AST – all I have is PI relating to the previous joint A ST clearly not matching my tenancy.
How do I go about claiming compensation for the failure to reprotect – what’s the procedure? I have been served with an Accelerated Procedure Claim form which I know I can defend because of the failure to reprotect the deposit correctly.
Should I start proceedings against the landlord now or wait until the Court hearing judgement regarding the Section 21 ?
