Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Small Claims Court

You can use the Small Claims Court to take legal action against someone if you are claiming less than £3000. You don't need a solicitor to go to Small Claims Court so the costs are much lower than the costs for other types of legal action.

You may need to go to court to resolve a housing problem you're having. The type of court you use will depend on your case. You will need a solicitor to help you with most court cases, but you don't need one for Small Claims Court.

Quando seu contrato termina o seu senhorio deve devolver o seu depósito de caução. O seu senhorio pode fazer deduções ao mesmo para qualquer aluguer não pago ou qualquer dano causado à propriedade ou ao mobiliário. Se não concordar com o valor que o senhorio deduz, deve tentar negociar. Se as negociações falharem, deve procurar aconselhamento no Tribunal de Pequenos Litígios (Small Claims Court).

A security deposit belongs to a tenant. You should look at this money in the same way that you would an insurance policy. You have no right to the money unless you have suffered a financial loss which was caused by the tenant failing to do something that he or she was contractually or legally obliged to do.

If your tenants have left the property owing you arrears or have caused substantial damage in the property you can take court action against them. If they owe less than £3000 you can take a case in the Small Claims Court where you will not need a solicitor. Your tenants may also make a small claim against you if they feel you have unfairly kept their deposit.

Your landlord has to protect your deposit within 28 days of you paying this money. They also have to give you certain information about your deposit and the company protecting it. 

Your landlord does not have to protect your deposit if you paid it before 1 April 2013. 

Most tenants pay a security deposit when they move into a property. This is the tenant's money and should be returned at the end of the tenancy unless the tenant owes the landlord money. The deposit should be returned in full unless the landlord has suffered a genuine financial loss as a result of your actions. If your landlord has unfairly kept some of your deposit you should try to get this money back.

În cazul în care ați achitat un depozit de garanție pentru închirierea unei proprietăți private la data de sau după data de 01 aprilie 2013, reprezentantul proprietarului sau proprietarul însuși are responsabilitatea legală de a proteja depozitul respectiv, în cadrul unei scheme aprobate. Depozitele care au fost înregistrate după data respectivă nu trebuie protejate în cadrul uneia dintre aceste scheme.

Ако платите гаранционен депозит за частно наемане на или след 1 април 2013 г., посредникът или наемодателят носят законната отговорност да гарантират депозита в одобрена схема. Не е необходимо взетите депозити преди тази дата да бъдат гарантирани по някоя от посочените схеми.
