The Deregulation Act 2015 (DA 2015) deals with an issue of concern that arose in Superstrike Ltd v Rodrigues  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.
Assuming there are no court determinations, this would appear to make the deadline 24 June 2015, but landlords would be well-advised to take action now to avoid any hair-splitting arguments as to the exact time for compliance.
If that is done then it will be as if the deposit had always been protected and the prescribed information served.
