A deposit of £525 was paid for an original tenancy of 6 months. There have been an additional two tenancy agreements signed. The deposit has never been protected. Can the tenant claim for three separate breaches and therefore be entitled to between £1575 and £4725 (excluding the return of the deposit). If so, is there any authority, ideally case law.
Are legal costs recoverable in pursuing non-protection of a deposit? Again, if so, what is the authority for this?
Thank you in advance
