  • Landlord return part of deposit before hearing

    He delayed and found lots of excuses not returning my deposit and deducted. Hearing going to held next week. He suddenly returned part of the deposit to me. Is it appropriate? Moreover, should I prepare N260? I donít have any representatives. Thank you.

    I would say, on the face of the very limited information you have given, that the partial return of the deposit a week before the trial to do with the deposit refund, may give grounds for a submission that the landlord has behaved unreasonably and that you should request a costs order against him.

      Are you claiming for 3 x deposit for non protection? I do not think part repayment will make a difference

        He said he keep a part of money because of the deduction (he thinks he should have) . Is it counterclaim?

        sorry that because the case is ongoing, Iím not sure if I can discuss it in public.

          Is the LL the Claimant or Defendant?

          Has the Defendant made a counterclaim?

          Was the deposit protected via an approved scheme?
