Hi All, My tenant’s deposit funds were secured correctly at the start of the tenancy.
However, the explanatory prescribed information leaflets about reclaim of cash etc. has NOT been served upon the tenant.
My question is: Will the eviction get blocked because of this paperwork oversight?
If so for how long and is there an easy/quick remedy?
Once your landlord has received your deposit, they have 30 days to tell you:
Your landlord also has to give you ‘prescribed information’ – this includes details about the property and your deposit. They can’t evict you with a section 21 notice if they haven’t given you this information or they didn’t sign it to say it was accurate.
If your landlord gives you the prescribed information late or pays your deposit back to you, they will be able to evict you with a section 21 notice.
