Tenancy Deposit Scheme Regulations
Possession - Section 8 and Section 21

My tenants moved in 18 Jan 2011 and paid "2 months in advance" with no mention in agreement of deposit.

I tried to issue a new tenancy agreement in January 2013 to incorporate the deposit scheme wording and at the same time increase the rent. The tenants did not agree to this. I in the meantime decided to protect the "deposit" being 1 month's rent on 5 February 2013. However, they did not receive the associated paperwork until 27 February 2014

I served a Section 21 on 18 Dec 2013 and a Section 8 on 16 Jan 2014 [2 month's rent arrears].

Am I in breach of the tenancy deposit regulations?
