Reminder of deadline for protection of pre-6 April 2007 tenancy deposits

Reminder of deadline for protection of pre-6 April 2007 tenancy deposits
What must landlords of statutory periodic tenancies that arose after 6 April 2007 do to comply with the tenancy deposit legislation?

The Deregulation Act 2015 (DA 2015) deals with an issue of concern that arose in Superstrike Ltd v Rodrigues [2013] All ER (D) 135 (Jun). One of the outcomes of the case was that landlords who had taken tenancies prior to the tenancy deposit legislation coming into force in April 2007 – where the tenancies had subsequently become statutory periodic tenancies - were required to protect deposits and serve prescribed information on the tenancies becoming statutory periodic. DA 2015 provides a window of time for such landlord to comply if they have not already done so.
