  1. Thank you very much mariner51 and ericsbrother for your enlightened opinions; which in turn have enlightened me! I had been hugely troubled by the Judge's behaviour towards my partner and I. But having read your comments, I have to react differently to what happened. Besides, the Judge's comments does not alter my evidence which I feel is quite robust. Your comments have been extremely helpful because my thoughts had become transfixed in one place, but you have shifted my thinking to a more constructive way of looking at the situation. I cannot thank you enough. The hearing is goin
  2. Report back from the Court:- Thank you to all Members who contributed to this thread. I would not have got this far, nor would I have had the means to collate a competent case file and present get me to the present position. There are two cases which were rolled into one court sitting: (i) non-protection of deposit; (ii) disrepair (with a counterclaim by the LLs). Court proceedings 1. The Judge said that the 2-hour allocated for the two matters was not long enough. 2. He asked us to find some commonality between us, and decide an outcome outside of Court. We were asked to go away fo
  3. Thank you SabreSheep. Yes, I have thought about that - and I have decided that I will cross that bridge when I reach it. I have a house in another part of the country which I am currently renting out. So I can potentially give my tenants 2 months notice and move back into my house. I have spent a lot of time researching this topic and I have more or less drafted particulars of claim which I hope to file this week. Thank you once again SabreSheep.
  4. Thank you SabreSheep and Mariner51 - Please note that I am still occupying the property in question. The AST was agreed on 26/05/2011. Many thanks once again.
  5. Thank you Mariner51 for taking the trouble to read my post, and for getting back to me. I will answer your questions in the order in which they appear: (i) I sent the LL a 'letter before action' but did not achieve an outcome, instead the LL sent me an e-mail as follows (copied and pasted in red font below): WITHOUT PREDIJUCE I am not prepared to enter into your pettiness…clearly you have a lot of time on your hands hence the longpointless letter. Iwill not be replying to your letter unless there is something else wrong with the house youlive in. Yours faithfully (ii) I do not und
  6. Background I posted the following before: Landlord is taking too long to restore heating in rented house [i would welcome some suggestions from Forum Members please as to what I should with regards to a landlord who is taking her time in restoring central heating in the house which I am renting. I have been without heating now for a week. Prior to this, the boiler had broken down a number of times and the landlord was told by two of the engineers that the boiler was obsolete and needed replacing. I have been in touch with the LL and made the point that the situation is becoming untenab

Prior to this, the boiler had broken down a number of times and the landlord was told by two of the engineers that the boiler was obsolete and needed replacing. I have been in touch with the LL and made the point that the situation is becoming untenable, but all I got back was that she is dealing with the matter. I would be grateful for some suggestions abo
  8. Thank you very much Mariner51 and I am sorry for the delayed expression of gratitude which has been due to a family bereavement. I have now paid the money to A's parents who were her Guarantors (as she was 17 at the time) - they have since banked the cheque. I now await B to execute their threat for taking me to Court for non-protection of deposit which presumably they never paid, assuming that A's parents' acceptance of the money which they had paid on behalf of their daughter had never been paid back to them by tenants B (as claimed by B earlier). If there are any further develop
  9. Thank you Raydetinu. Just for clarification, the deposit was protected before the S21 Notice but well after the 3-day period had lapsed. The Repossession Order was issued as a result. Tenants' 'B's argument is that the deposit was not protected within the 30-day window - although they never provided me with notification that they had in turn, paid tenant (a cousin of theirs) the deposit which they are now claiming that it was theirs.
  10. Thank you all - Stu007; Steve_M; Mariner51; Raydetuni: Just to touch on some queries for clarification starting with Stu007's queries:- (1) I protected the deposit into a TDS scheme before service of a S21 Notice and Repossession Order was issued on that basis; (2) I have not informed the TDS of the dispute as the tenants have since left and made no representations as regards the deposit; (3) The tenant eventually abandoned the property so the exact date of departure is unknown but the Repossession Order stipulated 26 February 2014 as the eviction date. (4) You are right, there was no check
  11. Thank you Stu007 for taking the trouble to read my post. 1. Yes, there was an AST for 'B'; 2. 'B's parents are not named on the AST, only 'A's parents who paid the surety which is assumed to have rolled over into 'B's contract. 3. 'B's deposit was deposited into a scheme long after the their AST commenced but within days after they finally confirmed that they had paid 'A's parents the £575 (which they had paid at the beginning of 'A's contract (NB was 17 - years old at time of signing AST; I foolishly didn't protect her deposit through lack of proper research on my part). I hope
  12. Dear Members I am an incidental landlord having lost my job and forced to relocate to an alternative location for a job. Unfortunately, I foolishly and naively did not do adequate research when renting out my house to a neighbour's close relative. As a result, I did not protect the tenant's deposit - I provide a chronology below. A catastrophic falling out, followed by non-payment of rent forced me to seek repossession under S21. I successfully obtained an Eviction Order as a direct outcome from the help I got from you! I would be grateful for your thoughts, views and suggestions.
  13. Hi Andy - thank you very much one again Andy, and I've added a reputation star too. The Claim is through MCOL. In a nutshell, the claim is purely for my out of pocket expenses. My rationale was to aim for the Smalls Claims court for an amount just under £1k being the costs for alternative accomodation which means I paid two lots of rent; paid Solicitor who advised that there was no breach of tenancy agreement as alleged by LL, and incidentalls - all coming to just under £1k. I'm alleging that but for the fact that the LL wrongly alleged me of a breach of agreement, I would not have needed to
