    Bit of a follow up. LL moaning because we haven't signed the new inventory (she has replaced the carpet in one of the rooms due to the previous tenants not reporting a moth infestation and the carpet getting damaged) We aren't renewing the AST and will be leaving next month so will sign one when we check out. So I don't see the point?

    Would I be wrong not to sign it? I don't see the point. Can she demand it?

      She can demand it, but there is nothing (realistic) that anyone can do to make you.

      On the other hand, it's not really an issue to sign it is it?

      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        No issue in signing it. It is just that I am abroad so can't sign it yet and she had a dramatic reaction to this.

        Offered to sign and send it when I return home.

        Her reaction just surprised me so was worried had missed something of legal importance.

          What does she expect you to do, buy a very long pen?

            Hello all,

            I'm hoping those of you with much more experience could help me out. I've been reviewing the way in which i manage my tenancy's and im thinking of no longer taking deposits and instead just bringing rent up to market value. Obviously there is both pros and cons to this idea...

            I am always wondering the wisdom of not charging a deposit.

            Sure there are less work involved, and creates less hassel, so far nearly always returned the full deposit.

            The deposit for me acts like a gate for tenant fiance, having deposit to pay usually means the tenants has...

            Good Evening Everyone,

            The answer is something you will have to agree with your landlord.
            The solution was not to have made an adjustment when the rent payment moved.

            While it's sensible to coincide paying rent with getting paid (which is usually why the date moved), the best solution is to leave the rent...

            Best strategy for keeping voids down and tenants staying longer is to charge the right rent and keep things in a decent state of repair.
            Or allow pets and/or prioritise tenants with school age children.

            Thanks for the replies - really helpful.

            The ex and I are still on good speaking terms so that side won't be a problem.

            I will speak to the landlord as we are also on good terms and hopefully, we can come to an arrangement.

            Lastly, how is the rent apportioned...

            Thank you both for your responses, so i would be able to offer both options when showing around prospective tenants? The reason for below market rate is to lower void periods and keep good tenants in situ for longer or at least i like to think thats how it works....

            I agree with jpkeates. Properties should be let at the market rents if you're running a business. You're allowed to set the rent as you see fit. The only chance of it ever being likely to become a problem is if after 12 months you elect to increase the rent using a s13 notice to a sum so far in excess...
