Possible S.214 Claim For Lots Of Tenancies Moving From Assured To Statutory

Recommended Posts

Interesting article here on the nearly legal blog. Could open up a real can of worms.

Basically, when shorthold assured tenancy ends and becomes a statutory tenancy its a new tenancy therefore the deposit is new even if it isnt returned and re-submitted. Therefore the prescribed information should be given within 30 days. Also applies to tenancies which started before the deposit protection scheme came in and became statutory tenancies after the scheme came in (i.e, they should then be protected).

I would imagine there are thousands of statutory tenancies out there without the prescribed information.

But there was argument on here just a day or so ago about how a S21 issued under the shorthold remains valid after the transtion to statutory, because it is not a new tenancy?
