How to chase landlord in court for late deposit protection

Well, the Landlord has been very wicked and as I said he tried all sorts of stunts to deduct deposit but he lost as DPS.

He was very slow in returning my deposit as he took a long time to get back to DPS. I vacated on 7 June and I got money back on 29-Aug. Reduce 4 weeks from this that DPS took for their own processing.

Hello All, Thanks for your comments. My case is for late protection and not sending me the Prescribed Information Booklet.

Can someone please answer this question for me, if I take the case to court will the court also order refund of court fee and other expenses.

I have seen on Landlordzone and consumeractiongroup website that the judge may not necessarily order the costs as well, particularly if the deposit was protected, late though. Are they just scare-mongers?... Read More
