I just wanted to find out what's what regarding not receiving Perscribed Information during a tenancy?
I have moved out of the flat I was renting on 10/4/12. The contract started on 10/4/09. The Landlord wants to take the full amount on claims that are unfounded. No inventory was signed, no check in or check out was done.
I have since checked and the deposit was registered with mydeposits, within the 14 day time period. No information was supplied to me however, and I never signed a certificate, despite asking for one.
Now, the problem I have here is there have been multiple breaches of the contract on the Landlords part, and one on my part. The landlord didn't fix the toilet for over a year despite constant hassle, so we had no toilet for a year. Luckily we had nice neighbours... Electricity regularly went out, as the propety had a prepay meter that was inaccessible to us, and the landlord regularly appeared without notice, came into our flat and took pictures without any notice and took things from our flat (they were his but they just would disappear one day)
Our breach is: Section: 17.10 - The landlord shall not be obliged to refund the deposit or any part of the deposit during the term as a result of any change in the person or persons who are named as the tenant.
One of us moved out, so I got someone else in to the room. I did notify the Landlord, but only over the phone and they said that was fine. No new contract was drawn up.
Do i have anything to work with here or is it a lost cause? Any help is greatly appreciated.
