Section 21 and late deposit protection into SPT periodMake Text Bigger
I would just like to clarify something unequivocally if you can please –
I thought it was set in stone that a section 21 notice cannot be valid if the deposit was protected late (unless the deposit has been returned etc etc.). But I have been told this: As my tenancy has rolled on to a SPT (in effect, a new tenancy) the late protection of the deposit doesn’t matter when it comes to a section 21 because it pertains to the old AST. The deposit is deemed to have been protected on time with regards to the current SPT as it was already protected by the TDS when the SPT started, therefore my section 21 IS valid. Can that be true?
Thanks for any help.
