    Tenant Deposit

    I've just registered a tenant's deposit online and printed the document
    Is it best to post this to them with proof of postage, email it to them or get them to sign for it?
    Thank you

    If you can get them to sign a copy and give back, do so. If not, some other method by which you can evidence that you've given the information.

      I usually arrange to drop by with it and check how they are getting on at the same time. This way, you get your signed copy. Important to have if they choose to claim otherwise later on.

        You can email it to them if your lease contains a clause saying something like:

        You agree that the service of notices, Rent Increase Notices, the How to Rent Guide, Gas Safety Inspection Report, Energy Performance Certificate, and Prescribed Information in relation to the government approved tenancy deposit scheme may be served on you by email. Your email address for these purposes is: Tenant 1: Email address:

        Otherwise, it'd be best to post and get them to sign for it.

          I've done some searching and I see people asserting that the typical lifetime of a carpet is between 5 and 7 years. My question is, has this been established in court or is it just general knowledge?...

          Hooper,

          Just post a new thread, I’ll lock this one for now, then remove it when the new thread gets going.

          Just to be clear (to everyone), here are some reasons why threads with names are edited or deleted.

          I made two separate requests (one direct and one through a referencing company) for a landlord / agent reference for the same tenant at the same address.

          I got two replies two days apart.

          The first said they had always paid within 7 days of the payment date and that there had...

          The underlay is the key.
          At home I use cheap carpet (because of pets) over good underlay.

          Let’s be honest, most tenants don’t look after carpets as well as a homeowner. There is no point putting a quality in a rental when you can’t be sure how it will be looked after - a burn or a coffee / wine stain will ruin a decent carpet as well as a cheap one. I go for a bleach cleanable, mid...

          There was nothing about a default in the post I was responding to.
          The post said that there had been a hearing, so if there was a default, it would have to be some kind of procedural issue.
          If you don't turn up to defend a claim, there has to have been some kind of error in notification...

          Most of my carpets in my own home (good quality) are 15+ years old and still, with care, look perfect.

          Asking carpet people how often you need to replace your carpet is like asking a damp proofing installer whether you need damp proofing....
