My tenancy ended last year on 7-June-2013. It was joint tenancy which started in Dec-2011 , ending on Nov-2012. The other two joint tenants left mid way through this period and I stayed on with other new friends that came along and shared the apartment. All this in full cognizance of the landlord.
The landlord had not protected the deposit until Nov-2012 when I started asking him deposit-id and he eventually deposited with DPS but late by almost ten months.
I am now relatively free from work and family and want use time to claim the penalty from landlord for delay in protecting my deposit. I have spoken to the landlord about it and he wants to see me in the court. The deposit has already been returned after adjudication by DPS.
I have obtained letters from other two tenants authorising me to act on their behalf in this matter of claiming penalty
I need advice on what I need to do next: I mean which form I need to fill and what are the things I really need to be cautious of.
Thanks for your help.
