    tenant caused damage during tenancy-deposit & TDS

    Tenant has caused damage and accepted liability during tenancy, wants it taken out of deposit. How does this effect TDS? Been right through their website and it makes no mention of during tenancy, just after? There is no dispute of course just wonder how it will look at the end of the tenancy when the amount is 'short'?

    Many thanks.

    First thing is agree the deduction, amount, date and what for in writing.

      I wouldn't agree to reduce the deposit amount during the tenancy. You'll have less protection against future damage/arrears.


        I'd try to have it resolved as soon as possible, with them paying for the damage now rather than from the deposit, leaving you less of a cover against further damage or arrears.

            Hi all,

            I signed terms and conditions with an estate agent that I would use them as the sole agent for 8 weeks. They don't seem to be getting as much interest as I had hoped (I have dropped the price).
            I know I break the terms if I use another estate agent so that is not an option-...

            Only the terms and conditions that you signed will be able to tell you that. Have a read of them again and see.

            Pretty awful letting agents. Hope you get redress.

            I’m a novice landlord based in Scotland. My letting agent charges me 12.5% and every 6 months I had a flat rate lease renewal fee of £80.

            With fairly recent changes to do away with Short Term Tenancies, I understand they cannot charge a lease renewal fee as they don’t...

            Have a look at the company accounts or google them to see if they make any finance based announcements.
            That'll give you some idea how profitable their business is.

            Part of the issue with letting agents is that good ones are difficult to find and doing the job well is much more expensive...

            Contact the software company themselves, you would get the right answer from them rather than this forum.

            My disputes with my letting agent re payments and application of the TFA now seem likely to go to the next stage, I.e. the TPO or legal action. I would be interested to hear the experiences of landlords who’ve been down the TPO route, i.e. length of time for resolution (TPO quote 3-4 months), apparent...
