An Assured Shorthold Tenancy commenced on 01/09/2016 as a periodic tenancy. There was no initial fixed term. The deposit was not protected until 05/04/2018 (20 months later). Is the landlord’s liability limited to paying the tenant up to three times the amount of the deposit (should the tenant issue a claim) or given that it was a periodic tenancy from the start will there be additional implications / liability for the landlord?
