        Would it be easier not to take any deposit from tenant ?

          It would be easier if landlords took the time and trouble to learn the law and offer a professional businesslike service!

                That's part of the agreement you need to make, there's no rules about that.

                When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
                Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                  I wouldn't let it go to court as the legal costs will make your eyes water

                    What does that mean in English?

                      The question is: If a settlement figure is agreed between the parties what is the timescale within which the former LL would have to pay the money to the former tenant? Immediately? 4 weeks? 6 months?

                        it may make you feel slightly better if only a little to learn that the tenant will receive very little of the money from the claim as most will go to the no win no fee solicitor

                          okay we have agreed a figure, what legal terms do i need to include on my letter of acceptance so that is the final figure and they cant come after me or any more costs or damages? Is there somewhere i can get a template letter?

                            well i fear I may end up in a similar situation the DPS scheme says that if you don't complete an action to set it to go periodic at the end of the fixed term it automatically becomes unprotected and you have to reprotect it again even though there is no new tenancy (original one now periodic). It's a really messed up system they have,

                            I complained to them and said that it should track the legal framework and the deposit based scheme where if no action is taken a fixed tenancy autmatically becomes periodic , all they could come up with is that is how the system works, no more questions, lucky they are able to get away with these things

                            my advice use deposit guard from the RLA cheaper , better and they don't try to catch you out

                              I think all 3 insurance scheme do that.... If you want to pay in and forget, use a custodial scheme.

                                What can be done about tenants just leaving the property without notice, nor paying rent before the end of the fixed term AST?

                                I'm talking about the rented room on AST in London started September last year. I've got no forwarding address and suspect they left abroad. Can I put it in court?...

                                T leaving keys in the property does not end the Tenancy, unless you accept them.

                                Hi - I have 3 bed house. I have converted one reception into room where I live and I have rented out 3 bedrooms upstairs (2 double bed and 1 single).

                                I'm thinking of doing loft conversion that's mean 4th bedroom. Do I need hmo license if I do loft conversion?

                                You need an HMO licence even without the conversion, assuming double occupation of at least one double bedroom. This assumes there is no selective licensing for smaller HMOs.

                                You need to obey HMO regulations, even if there are only 4 residents, in total.

                                I served a section 21 notice which ended on 2nd June on a tenant. The reason was the tenant had not claimed their housing benefit. They finally got this sorted and I got paid in April then again in May. I went to the house on 22 May, the tenant was just going into the house, the first time I had seen...

                                I had a similar problem with a tenant. I had to provide a tenancy agreement with a note written by me explaining that the tenancy was relinquishd early, by mutual agreement. I gave the date that she was responsible for the tenancy for (which was a month later than she said). A couple of months later...

                                Walk away from them, there’ll be plenty more potential tenants.
                                letting agent I engaged agreed to let my flat without giving me all the info on the tenant. It’s been a nightmare of constant late payments, so many lies by agents that are still coming to light, tenants income wasn’t verified,...

                                so the picture of an empty room with the keys on the table is good enough as evidence?
                                And I'll take it to the court but if they've got a job in Ireland, not in the UK, I'll not get my rent back? And if they do get a job in the UK, automatically they will be made to pay me the rent that they owe?...
