    I give the precribed info out at the same time as the contract, it is part of the standerd ast I use so I dont have to worry about it.

    Not so.

    By law, a LL is required to give the tenant certain "Prescribed Information" within 14 days of receiving the deposit.

    The statutory instrument (the law) is linked here and gives the full SP on what is required: http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si2007/pdf...0070797_en.pdf

    Hi Bandit,

    If you're with the DPS then look at the site and find the terms and conditions page. You can download this in a pdf format if required and/or print this off directly from the viewing page.
    Send a letter to the tenant stating what date you deposited it, where it's actually deposited, the deposit ID, and a copy of the T&C's they provide.

    DPS will send Tenant information re their REFUND ID, (not to be mistaken for the deposit ID)

    Hi, can anybody tell me EXACTLY what i need to provide to my tennant by way of 'prescibed information', ive put the deposit in the dps, it still shows 'awaiting clearance' got 14 days to give information to tenant.... do dps send anything to tenant to confirm this or do i print off the page showing payment together with the dps contact details, is there a thread on this site i can refer to? it seems its as much of an offence to not provide the information within the timescale as it is to not protect the deposit within the timescale? thanks

    I think there'll be a dip in property prices post event.
    There'll be a lot of dead, grieving and damaged people and lots of businesses and jobs will be gone forever.

    Which will keep landlords in the rental business, because it won't be the best time to sell up.

    The government...

    I've been reading all the chat on this forum and was thinking about what it's going to be like after, will landlords be more weary of self employed tenants, have more uc or pack in all together ? Interesting times and the tenants are going to struggle even more as landlords try to doubley make sure...

    Honestly, you need proper legal advice.
    This is a huge mess and it's getting worse with everything you do.

    Legal advice only seems expensive when you compare it with nothing.
    When you compare it with the costs of getting this wrong, it'd cheap.

    If the person is...

    Hi

    I have rented my mother’s house out to 2 x lodgers on my mother’s behalf as she has been hospitalised due to mental medical condition. A lodger agreement was given to them as she was expected to return back in few weeks’ time. However situation had changed and she had to live out...

    Thanks for replies. The only reason I am serious over this matter is because apart of CVD19 outbreak I might be accused of causing this mess despite I don't smoke. But there is a little obstacle in actually ascertaining as who is the real culprit because upward there are two more flats (1st & 2nd...

    After some thought I am considering including a one time offer with my letter and statement. I know that the tenant could potentially move into her dad's house. With the arrears statement I am thinking to make an offer " without prejudice " that if tenant vacates the property within 14 days...

    I will ask for others opinions because I am not an expert on resident landlords / lodgers, but I don't believe any of them could have been lodgers if there were 3 of them occupying all 3 bedrooms - ie, no where for a resident landlord to reside. And if they were't lodgers, they were tenants. As your...
