Will consideration of my dispute be delayed if one of the parties refuses to co-operate or the deposit holder doesnt send in the deposit?
No. We will continue with the adjudication regardless. If we have not received the deposit from the Member we will make a claim from the TDS insurers and pursue the Member for reimbursement. If the other part(ies) do not give a response to your evidence, we will continue with the adjudication without it. If only part of the deposit is sent to us, we will continue with the adjudication regardless. If we make an award to the tenants, they will be paid first. There may therefore be a shortfall in the amount available to settle an award to the landlord or the agent. They will need to resolve this between themselves.
