have decided that I am sueing my LL and the choice I have are


MCOL for £795 (deposit) which he put in a scheme 10 months after i gave it to him (gave in jan 13, he paid it in dec 13)


MCOL for £795 (deposit) + damage to my property from the damp in the house, plus stress and harressment as he refuses to fix any thing in the house


N1 claim form for everything I am not happy with and let judge decided


which do you think would be best way


am not bothered about him evicting me

You have outlined 3 options, but which one do you favour?



Not even sure if MCOL can be used for deposit dispute and I doubt you can claim for stress & harassment unless you have suffered a related financial loss. Best route may be a paper-based SCC claim for return of full deposit and hope you get a sympathetic Judge to consider the separate matter of damage to your contents due to alleged damp.

Hi beans


You state the LL put the deposit in the deposit scheme some 10months after you paid LL the deposit.


Have you claimed the deposit back from the deposit scheme holding it?

no, they wont let me with out a court order to do it, as it is still with in the first 30 days of it being put in, plus my LL wont agree to it or give me a good ref to move house, as I had to get EH to force him to fix a leaking chimney which has ruined one half of a house wall, as the chimney is leaking, which has caused damp in 2 bedroom walls and a bathroom down stairs, plus other things in the house, he has neglected over the years
