My landlord has not protected my deposit?
Where a deposit is paid in relation to a assured shorthold tenancy, then a landlord has 30 days in which to protect a tenants deposit from receipt of it. A landlord must comply with the initial requirements of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme by giving the tenant and any relevant person (meaning someone who pays the deposit on the tenants behalf, which includes the local housing authorities) certain prescribed information about the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, the deposit and the AST.
There are potentially significant penalties if a landlord fails to comply with requirements of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme. In particular, a tenant can make a claim to the court for an order that the landlord repays the tenant their entire deposit, and pays the tenant compensation under s.214 of the Housing Act 1014 (as amended) which is up to three times the value of the deposit. Also the landlord is unable to serve a valid section 21 notice seeking to regain possession of the property during either the period of non compliance or before returning the deposit to the tenant.
What is the 'prescribed information' for a valid new s.21 notice?
The ideal situation for a valid section 21 notice to be effective is that the landlord has provided to the tenant the following documents ideally at the beginning of the tenancy and has confirmation of such:
- Prescribed information from the tenancy deposit scheme,
- Energy performance certificate
- gas safe certificate, and,
- the how to rent guide.
If a landlord does not provide these at the start of the tenancy then the landlord shall need to provide the tenant which such before a landlord is able to serve a valid section 21 notice.
Can I retract a notice to quit to exercise a break clause in an assured shorthold tenancy before expiry of the notice?
This scenario was addressed by the Court of Appeal in Fareham Borough Council v Miller. Although this was a case involving a landlord’s notice to quit, there is no reason why the same principle, in that a notice to quit, once served cannot be revoked.
Fareham Borough Council v Miller is widely understood to apply equally to a tenant’s notice to quit. Therefore, if a tenant serves a notice to quit and changes their mind, the tenant cannot revoke it. All they can seek to do is agree a new tenancy with the landlord to begin after their current one has ended.
My tenant has stopped paying their rent and still lives in the property?
A tenant is lawfully obligated to pay the rent on or before the date it is due as set out within the tenancy. This is a lawful obligation on the tenant part and there are if any very few reasons where a tenant can refuse to pay the rent due. If a tenant refuses to pay the rent lawfully due then a landlord can choose to evict the tenant either using the section 21 route and submitting a money claims for the rent owed or by serving a section 8 notice where the rent due is more than two months in arrears. There are also genuine reasons where a tenant may not be able to pay the rent, so any prudent landlord would be well to have a conversation to establish why the tenant has stop or is refusing to pay the rent due before jumping into the deep end.
