Hi. could someone please advise me where I stand legally regarding my deposit?
I moved into a 2 bed flat under a landlady I’ll call KJ back in Feb 2007. I paid deposit. Later in 2012 I swapped to a 2 bed house KJ owned also and she said we could just carry the deposit over from the flat.
in 2013/14 I had some issues with her and asked for my deposit scheme information. She said she would email it over but I never received anything. I presumed it unprotected. I have been advised that she could pay a penalty if I decided to take her to court. I have read things that say she must give me ‘the prescribed information’ at time of protecting it and she must do it within 30 days. well I’ve never received any information whatsoever but I HAVE managed to find it on TDS. it says began on 10/5/2012 which is about a week out but yeah OK. Then it says received by member 8/2/2007 which is the correct original time I gave her deposit for previous address. Then says registered on 15/1/2013. which is way after the 30 days from may 2012. does this mean she would still be liable in court or because it IS protected albeit late is it all classed as above board????
