Hi all. Hope you had good Christmases.
I recently moved out of a rented flat and looking for some advice on getting the deposit money back. I've read online that deposits have to be returned within 10 days (or a claim filed to make deductions), but can't see anything about what happens if it isn't?
I know there's a fine of three times the deposit amount if it isn't put into a deposit protection scheme at the start of the tenancy - is there a similar penalty for not returning it speedily?
To be honest, I don't want to mess around trying to enforce fines or the like - I just want my money back - but it would be good ammunition if I do have to encourage them to pull their finger out.
