Good morning

I have issued a Section 8 notice dated the 6th November 2018 citing Grounds 8, 10 and 11. This is based on an AST issued 27th September 2017 in England for a couple. Original fixed term was 6 months, £450 rent per month, no deposit taken. Arrears are £2,760. Suggestion has been made by local Law Centre acting for the tenants that a counterclaim will be submitted based on the fact that on a previous tenancy with the same landlord, the landlord failed to protect the deposit. Can a counterclaim be made on this claim for a previous tenancy?? I would have thought that any counterclaim would need to be related to this tenancy?? Can anyone throw some much needed light on this subject please?

Many thanks
