Hi

I have just found this forum which has plenty of useful information and members who are willing to help.

I am approaching at end of my fixed term tenancy. I had following tenancies for my previous property:

6 month Jan – June 2015 AST

July 2015 – July 2016 NO TENANCY AGREEMENT I ASSUME THIS IS PERIODIC TENANCY

Aug 2016 – May 2017 AST

I paid £2000 deposit when i first moved in and which was retained by the landlord during whole period. I have now find out that he didnt protected my deposit. I would like to know if the landlord must have protected my same £2000 deposit against each tenancy altough it was never returned or fresh taken at any time?

Thank you.

Yes ! 

When each tenancy ends, the landlord must take the deposit out of the scheme and reprotect it when the new tenancy begins. This is a must and if your landlord hasn’t done so, you can claim compensation from the courts. 

We can link you to a partner solicitor company that deals with these types of claims. They can provide you with free consultation on your situation and if you decide, file the claim in your name.
