If you are a business owed money by an individual (including a sole trader) then if payment is not made you need to ensure that you follow the Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims which came into force on 1 October 2017 (although there are different Protocols for Construction and Engineering Debts and for Mortgage Arrears).
The Government have imposed a deadline of 23 June 2015 for Landlords who took deposits from tenants before 6 April 2007 to comply with deposit protection requirements or face having to repay the deposit, pay a penalty of 3 times the deposit and risk not being able to seek possession of the property at all.
