I have not protected my tenants deposit.
I know that I cannot serve a Section 21 until it is returned but they are 7 months in arrears.
Can I still serve a section 8 Notice on rent arrears? Can this be successful?
I know that they can bring a counter claim against me but will this affect my right to possession?
The 7 months arrears would equate to more than 2 months arrears even if the counter claim was offset against the value.
