Hi,

 

We have rented a house for the last 3 years and have always paid the rent on time.

 

However, the landlord has not been doing any repairs so we served him notice to end the tenancy.

 

I have now discovered when he registered the deposit with the DPS, that he had not done so correctly.

 

Basically, The tenancy agreement is in his Limited Companies name yet the deposit is in his personal name. he had also not registered both of the tenants names with the DPS, only mine.

 

I spoken to the DPS and they confirmed the errors. I then said, well if the deposit is not registered correctly then surely they have no legal bases to hold on to the deposit and must return it to me immediately of which they refused.

 

DPS said, i have to request the refund (Already done) wait 14 days for the landlord to respond, if no response, i have to complete a form get it witnessed by a Solicitor and then wait another 14 days for the landlord to respond. if no response then i get the deposit back.

 

Can i have some advise please?
