Failed to secure deposit
My father as landlord, entered an AST for a flat he owned on 20 October 2018. The deposit and first month's rent was paid into his bank account. He died on 24 October and I didn't realise, until the tenancy had expired on 19 October 2019, that the deposit hadn't been protected. I immediately did so. I need to sell the property and didn't renew the tenancy. The tenant will not move out and has just issued me with a letter before action for not protecting the tenancy, threatening court action unless I settle between 1-3 times her deposit. Can someone please help with some advice. This tenant is a real piece of works.
