If my landlord failed to return my deposit in due time and subsequently his company went into Receivership (Section 38) can I still issue a money claim against him or shall I contact the appointed receiver directly (the receiver has been appointed but has not contacted me)?

The landlord goes into receivership because he has no money to pay bills
or deposits.
Your first point of contact is the receiver. Get in there fast with your claim.

Was your deposit not protected in one of the 3 schemes?

If so, you may be able to get your deposit back, but receiver is now the
custodian of finances, but protected deposit means you can get it back, but
only on the sayso of those authorised to agree to return it, namely the receiver.

Or, was there a letting agent who depositied it on behalf of the landlord ?
