  1. Thanks. I think I'll do that. Another two weeks will not make any difference and I can get the claim all correctly worded and the witnes statementin the meantime. Could i post it on here without any names involved or would that breach the rules? Also, has anyone got any advice on the question about the claimants? Can it be two names i.e Mr Joe Bloggs, Miss Jane Doe? Because there were two names on the agreement.Thanks
  2. Thanks for the advice. Is that correct about the recorded delivery? I don't really want to start over - unless of course not doing so would be dtrimental. I sent the letter before action by email as well as we had been sending emails back and forth and I had asked him as suggested in an earlier post if he was prepared to accept email as a means of communication for serving papers and he agreed. I have been working with this link for the claim: https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?126261-TDS-Court-Claims-Wording(2-Viewing)-nbsp Thanks again
  3. Thanks. Sorry I haven't really got the hang of things. And thanks everyone for the advice I did stop texting him and just sent the letter before action and he didn't accept it from recorded delivery but I have proof of postage and confirmation online that they couldn't deliver because nobody would accept it
  4. Yes that's it. Should I have asked on that thread? I kept getting warned for merging threads and thought this was just a question about the court papers?
  5. Hi. I have served my ex landlord a Letter Before Action concerning not protecting my deposit and waited three weeks with no response and now want to claim at court. I'm following the advice from another thread about going forward with the claim but I'm stuck with one point. My girlfriend was added to the tenancy agreement after a few weeks and a new tenancy agreement was provided. Do I make the claim in both our names or just mine? the claim form it says Claimant. Is it acceptable for their to be two claimants? thanks
  6. HI Further to another thread I've posted on here, I'm i dispute with my previous landlord in that he did not protect my deposit. He harassed me for rent and I left the property early. He has since been paid the rent arrears from housing benefit but continued to pursue me for rent for the remainder of the tenancy. I requested information about the TDS and he said he didn't protect it. Throughout emails and texts over the past few weeks he's constantly referred to the deposit. But i think he's becoming more and more desperate. Yesterday he stopped me in the str
  7. Hi, yes, he said he accepted texts and emails as a method of communication to accept documents. I followed your advice.
  8. Hi again Further to the above dispute with my previous landlord. I have informed him that my ameneded letter before action is in the mail and that all previous offers have been withdrawn. However, he has texted me to say he's claiming from me first> That he's sent a Late Payment Demand and that I will only have seven days to respond and then end up in court. It will include solictors costs etc. I explained to him that he could merely counter claim my claim and save the possibilty of court twice but he's laughed it off and said I should have been quicker. A
  9. Great advice. I really appreciate it. It's amazing what you can find out on here. I've discovered that he should also have given me an energy performance certificate and an annual gas safety record, and had smoke alarms on both storeys of the residence. He didn't provide any of these. And he's now texted me to say he will contact the council and say I was working when claiming the housing benefit. Unbelievable. I'm at college becoming a counselor for alcoholics.
  10. Many thanks for the above. Yes, I've merged two threads. Sorry. He has offered to accept my first offer if I return to the property and paint one room. Which is ridiculous as I left the property in good order. I even invited him to view it before leaving the keys. I think he just needs the last say. he doesn't want to think I get the better of him. He even suggested that this should happen within the next 48 hours of by the end of the week he would only be offering £250 Can I withdraw the first offer by text or email? And inform him a revised LBA i
  11. Hi everyone. This is a great forum. I've had problems with my ex landlord demanding that I owed rent to him after leaving the property because of harassment. After reading through threads on here I asked him to provide a proof of a deposit protection scheme and displayed to him why I thought he had harassed me and breached his tenancy contract. I texted him all this and mentioned county court and he laughed and said "bring it on". But then I sent him a letter before action just asking for the deposit back or it would go to court and all of a sudden he is falling over backwa
  12. Thanks for the reply. What would be the situation as I've outlined. When I sent a recorded delivery letter to the landlord to give him 28 days notice because he had failed to fix the soil pipe etc and he didn't then query it. In fact, he texted me to say fine that he would be coming down to get the keys in the next couple of days. Is that him accepting it? Or did he need to accept it in writing? When the payment was late he even texted me " put 200 pounds into my account tonight and when I come to get the keys I won't be as angry ...." Also he has alr
  13. Hi everyone. I'm a new member on here. I came across the site when researching tenancy deposit schemes and I've read through several threads but can't seem to find and guidance in relation to my particular problem. Briefly, in September of last year I agreed to rent a property with a private landlord. I had a few concerns about the property but the landlord assured me they would be dealt with once I moved in. But I needed somewhere to live quickly and my mother paid the deposit. The rent was to be paid by housing benefit. There was mould throughout the property, there
