Looking for some advice….
We (married couple) have been Tenants since 2nd Feb 13 on a 6 month fixed term AST
On 2nd Aug 13 we signed another 6 month FT AST
On 2nd Feb 14 we signed another 6 month FT AST.
Recently due to repairs not being done, gas certificate not being provided, EPC report not provided etc. we sent an email to the Landlord on 6/3/14 highlighting all the issues and included a request for the reference number for our deposit scheme.
The Landlord had not (confirmed proof) protected our deposit of £550.00 until they had received our email on 6/3/14.
On 6/3/14 the Landlord protected our deposit On 10/3/14
I have read the Superstrike case and am confused…. I have been told that each of the tenancies was a ‘new’ FT Tenancy so it would be classed if court proceedings were issued as 3x 1-3x Penalty.
Others have told me that it would be one case (1x) 1-3x Penalty.
My question who is right?
