Hi Everyone

My tenants started their tenancy in 2010 upon which I took a deposit for £600. I plan to move back in the house so need to give them notice.

I secured the deposit late in 2015.

I have the tenants bank account details and was wondering if the steps I plan to take before issuing the section 21 notice are correct.

  1. I wil inform the tenant in writing that I will be returning the deposit in full
  2. Return the money via the bank
  3. Inform the Tenancy Deposit Scheme that I have returned the money.
  4. Then after a few days serve the section 21

Any advice will be grateful
