  1. It will make it more difficult to evict you without his copy of the tenancy agreement. It's a pity you can't find your copy either (no you can't).
  2. Excellent! It's the claim form N5B on which the landlord has to apply to the court which has changed - not the S21 form served to the tenant.
  3. This is the most up to date information I can find about evictions: https://nearlylegal.co.uk/2020/03/emergency-legislation-on-possession-claims/
  4. More info https://nearlylegal.co.uk/2019/04/the-end-of-section-21/
  5. Assuming you're in England or Wales the deposit had to be protected within 30 days of receipt either by the landlord or his agent. Even if he returns all of your deposit so he can serve a (possibly) valid S21 notice you can still sue him for non-protection and I believe you have six years from the date by which the deposit should have been protected.
  6. Perhaps a low stress option would be to sue him for lack of deposit protection using a no win no fee lawyer who specializes in such cases but wait until you've left first.
  7. What is really needed to give tenants security of tenure is to abolish the "Section 21" notice (a notice of at least two months which a landlord may serve on a tenant that he requires possession of the property). There is no defence to a correctly served notice and a Court is bound to grant a Possession Order which allows the landlord to have the tenant evicted. Ah! Just saw a red van outside - I wonder what the postie has brought today. Hopefully not the above mentioned.
  8. It is quite a difficult legal process to do yourself but there are "no win no fee" lawyers who will do it for you and take a cut of the winnings. You can make a claim up to 6 years after the date by which the deposit should have been protected. Nothing the landlord can do now can prevent you from being successful although it may reduce the amount of the award if he protects it now. In any case you are guaranteed a minimum of 1 x deposit (max 3 x) in addition to getting the deposit back.
  9. Ah yes, ship. https://forums.landlordzone.co.uk/forum/residential-letting-questions/1038495-has-the-buy-to-let-ship-sailed
  10. Puter still says no. Sometimes I just hate all this technology.
