  • AST prohibits paying final rent from deposit- but arrears

    I have a T who is now a week late with their last payment before vacating the property. Not normally an issue, tennant always paid a couple of days late, but T has in the past asked last month rent can be taken from deposit. This has always been refused due to known deductions held against the deposit. Also AST stipulates that the deposit can not be used for payment of rent under any circumstances.

    LA holds deposit and is registered in Government approved scheme. They also inform me they have deductions against the deposit.

    How would the deposit be split and who would chase after T for what elements?

    I would guess all deductions occur first then the outstanding balance goes towards the rent and is given to me as LA will look after themselves first.
