If you have entered into assured shorthold tenancy agreement since 2012 and paid a deposit, you could be entitled to receive up to 3 times your deposit in compensation.
If a Landlord takes a deposit from a tenant, the law states that they must protect that deposit by placing it in a deposit scheme. The Landlord must also provide the tenant with details on the prescribed scheme.
If the Landlord has not done both of these, they are subject to a penalty of 1-3 times the tenancy deposit amount and this is what you would receive.
For example, if your tenancy deposit was £1,000.00, we would seek a return of your tenancy deposit between 1-3 times the deposit sum as compensation. The compensation is not your tenancy deposit, it is an additional sum.
You are also entitled to claim if you have moved out of the property and had your original deposit returned.
If you are not sure whether your deposit was protected, we can use the information contained in your tenancy agreement to determine whether you have a tenancy deposit claim.
