tenant deposit dispute
I signed a tenancy contract on 2011 which ended on 2012. There was a deposit of £750 which was not registered under any government authorised scheme and held by the landlord. After my tenancy ended, I kept on reminding them about my deposit for one week, after which the estate agents called and told me that the landlord would cut £250 for wear and tear. I left the house in a better condition than what I got when I moved in, I told him that it is unreasonable and he will have to give me the full deposit back or else I will have to take legal action. He got angry and told me that he is not going to give me any money and asked me to get my deposit back by the legal means. I called up shelter.co.uk and they advised me to send a letter before action giving him 14 days to reply or give the deposit back. He did not respond even after 20 days. Then I called shelter again and they asked me to fill up form n208 and submit it in county court asking for a compensation of 3 times the deposit plus the interest an legal charges coming to around £2500. I have downloaded the form and going to fill it soon. Is there any risk of the case going against me as I don’t have any pictures of the property? Under the tenancy deposit scheme rules the landlord has to register the deposit in 1 month after receiving it. So it’s his entire fault and in normal circumstances I should win the case easily. Just wanted to get some expert advice before I proceed...
