Last week thurs (17th Jan 2013), a bunch of Bailiff guys came into the flat that I am staying in to clear things out of the flat as they have court orders that the landlord had actually sold the place 2 years ago and she does not have the rights to rent it out due to this.

 

My flatmates had called the police and when the police had arrived and had confirmed about this as well (as the Bailiff have court letters to show the policeman).

 

Due to this, I have contacted the landlord that I've paid to and she had promised to return the 6 weeks deposit (a total of £1275) that I've paid to on 21st Jan 2013. I have waited till that day itself and had text her many times. At the end of the day till now I have only received a back a total of £220. I have texted her and to inform her that I am giving her till 26th Jan 2013 to get back my deposit or else I will be heading to the county court which the court will ask for one to three times the deposit due to the reason that she did not register my deposit under the government's deposit scheme.

 

I had seek advices from Shelter and the Citizen Advice Bureau and I am preparing the N208 claim form. My problem is that, the adviser from Shelter had said that I will need to have the current address of the Landlord else I will not be able to enforce the claim.

 

I am not sure what should I do now as the landlord just said you can go to the court if you want and I can't find her current address at all (had tried 192.com, seaching online, yellow pages, etc).

 

Really need some help as I can't move into a new place too without my deposit.

It's not clear when you actually moved into this flat and paid the deposit. There may be fraud taking place if someone is renting out and collecting money for a property they don't own and did not have permission to rent out. I would report it to the police and make a statement. Also it must have been the new owner who took action for repossession of their property and will have cost them to do so. If you can identify them, maybe they can help with letting you know where you might find the previous owner and some further information as to how you came to be in this position without any warning and perhaps an the address used by your 'landlord' for the sale two years ago. On the face of it this does not seem like an ordinary case of a landlord who hasn't followed procedure and is refusing to return your deposit. Can't hurt might help!
