Deposit not registered
I was speaking to a friend of mine today who has a 12 month Ast.
This agreement started last July and we have ascertained that the landlord hasn't registered the deposit of £525.
Upon looking at the AST, under the deposit section it states that the deposit will be held in "an interest bearing account" so basically the landlord has kept it.
What grounds of appeal does the tenant have in this case- can they claim the Ast is null and void or can the landlord register the deposit now and he's in the clear?
