The Court will make an order stating that the Landlord must pay the deposit back to the Tenant or lodge it with the custodial scheme which is known as the Deposit Protection Scheme. In addition a further order will be made requiring the Landlord to pay compensation to the Tenant of an amount equal to three times the deposit. The Landlord will be unable to serve a Section 21 Notice on the Tenant until compliance with the above conditions and the Court will not grant the Landlord a possession order.

All parties agree to co-operate with any adjudication.
p) When the amount in dispute is over £5,000 the Landlord and the Tenant will agree by signing the tenancy agreement to submit a formal arbitration through the engagement of an arbitrator appointed by the ICE although, with the written consent of both parties, the ICE may at his discretion accept the dispute for adjudication. The appointment of an arbitrator will incur an administration fee, to be fixed by the Board of the Dispute Service Ltd from time to time, shared equally between VITA PROPERTIES and the Landlord and the Tenant. The liability for any subsequent costs will be dependant upon the award made by the arbitrator.
q) The statutory rights of either the Landlord or the Tenant(s) to take legal action against the other party remain unaffected.
r) It is not compulsory for the parties to refer the dispute to the ICE for adjudication. Parties may, if either party chooses to, seek the decision of the Court. However, this process may take longer & may incur further costs. Judges may, as it is a condition of the Tenancy Agreement signed by both parties, refer the dispute back to the ICE for adjudication. If the parties do agree that the dispute should be resolved by the ICE, they must accept the decision of the ICE as final & binding.
s) If there is a dispute we must remit to The Dispute Service Ltd the full deposit, less any amounts already agreed by the parties and paid over to them. This must be done within 10 working days of being told that a dispute has been registered whether or not you or we want to contest it. Failure to do so will not delay the adjudication but The Dispute Service Ltd will take appropriate action to recover the deposit and discipline us. We must co-operate with the ICE in the adjudication of the dispute and follow any recommendations concerning the method of the resolution of the dispute.
