    Deposit protection on tenancy renewal?

    Please everybody, could we have a reasoned discussion about this subject, particularly in regard to the 'renewal scenario' that seems to wind people up. I, for one, want to learn what is or is not permissible. Is there anyone who works for these schemes who would like to post? Anybody else with inside knowledge?
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

    I am a landlord. But not protecting a deposit is foolish and careless. I would go for it, I think you are entitled 1 to 3 times of the deposit so no body will go bankrupt, go for the max, can't see any excuse for not protecting a deposit. A landlord may forget to do something and a judge would be lenient...

    Hi all,

    I know there's plenty of info on what to do when deposits are not protected but I wonder what your advice would be in this particular situation?

    A friend of mine took on a rental in London last year and has given notice to vacate for end of this month. It's through...

    I'd wait until the deposits been returned.
    Unless the agent makes some unreasonable demands, in which case I'd start then.

    Your friend has six years from the deadline to protect the deposit to make a claim.

    Even if the agent is acting on behalf of a landlord, it's possible...

    My tenant was supposed to have left yesterday but she hasn't so this morning I posted my N325-eng form with the £130 for the bailiffs.

    I am expecting the court to take about three weeks to issue the warrant and four to six weeks for the bailiffs to come so about two months or so. She...

    Is the agent the named landlord on the tenancy agreement. If so, go for it. If agent is agent for some other named landlord, you will be screwing someone who has already been screwed over by the agent, so would need a good (moral) reason to want to do that....

    31 !!! Is not young, she is acting like a 15 year old, at 19 i was at war in the South Atlantic, that was young, she sounds immature and delusional.

    As said by others, forget all the updates with her and ensure you deal with her in a business like manner, she really is in for a big shock..........

    Thank you all.

    What I've understood from the replies and some searching from my side is that:

    1) The court fee (£355) and a fixed fee (about £50-£80 depending on the nature of the case) are claimable only. I'm not sure if there are any others?

    2) You would fill...

    Hi all,

    I'm sure this has been answered before, but I'm having difficulty finding an answer using the search function.

    My tenant is currently on a statutory periodic tenancy.

    I wanted to ask who pays for the costs involved a Section 21 possession claim. Fees such...

    Don't do it, don't give the T further information follow through with court action, the T will have free legal aid, plus the advice from the council to stay in the property until the T is physically removed by bailiffs. As I stated previously you should be maintaining a account statement on the payments...
