small claims, mason vs machowieski. MASON IS TRIUMPHANT. dunno if any of you remember me saying about the old deposit protection scheme where by you can claim 3 times the amount of your deposit back if your landlord fails to protect it.

smarmy fucker has to pay me 960 quid in the next 14 days. should have seen him squirm, it was eeeexcellent.

awesome! i remember reading what you wrote about that, and was delighted to find out that my deposit for last year hadn't been put into the government scheme. sadly it is only for properties with rent of less then 25k a year where you have to do this (it is being changed to 100k) and seeing as there was 9 of us living there it wasn't applicable :(

glad you got your cashish though

Top man, knowing landlords I wouldn't be surprised if he longs you off for a bit though!


Could you redirect me the post where you mentioned this in the first place? Ive lost about 3k in deposits over the last few years.

not sure where it is mate. just search for deposit protection scheme on google, you'll find plenty about it.

i'm still buzzing about this. he's got to pay it within 14 days. just in time for my hols. he's getting the first postcard. best bit is, i'd withheld the rent and owed him 700 pound due to disrepair, him, his wife and his sister were all there as 2 defendants and a witness, against just me, pretty nerve wrecking as i've never set foot in a court before but i wiped the floor with all of them. i get the feeling he'll pay it and not bother trying to take me to court for the remainder of the outstanding rent.

before all this blew up he came round threatening us saying he'd taken name after name to court and never lost....BOOM!!! i reckon thats what spurred me on to do it. i didn't even glance at them as i left. i bet their faces were quality.
