View Full Version : Return of my deposit

Hi I don't know if this has been answered anywhere previously, but I was wondering how long I legally have to take my previous landlord to court using form N208 for faillure to return my deposit? I have been somewhat distracted with being on the sick and being made unemployed in the last couple of months to submit my form and I am now worried I have past the time frame I can legally claim my money back in. I am aware of all the legallities and I am also aware I can ask up to three times the amount of my original deposit and I am satisifed my ex-landlord would have no leg in effect to stand on in court when I submit my form etc I am just worried it would now be too late. Can anyone tell me how long I have in which time to claim my money back in?

You haven’t run out of time to make a claim.

Is the deposit protected in a scheme?
