    How to move T's deposit from one scheme to another?

    Hello all

    I am leaving the TDS scheme as it is too expensive and intend to use the free one, the DPS.

    What are an agents and landlord's legal requirements please? For example, do I need tenant's permission before I transfer deposits? Or can I just inform them after it is done and send the new certificate?

    Any others?

    Thanks in advance

    I have a mobile home next to my property. Do I qualify for the rent a room scheme if I rent out the mobile home but the occupant must use the shower and washing facilities in my house i.e. so that the mobile home is not a separate unit of accommodation? There is a provision by the council that it...

    I have a basic understanding of regulated tenancy. I'm looking to buy a property with a tenant in situ on a regulated tenancy. In the real world, what are the pros and cons? Is there anyone with any experience?

    How basic is your understanding?

    From your other thread you are seeing a broker about a BTL mortgage. I think you will struggle to secure a BTL mortgage against a property with a Regulated Tenancy in place....

    Unless it is REALLY cheap - don't!

    I inherited a property with a regulated tenant. The rent can only go up once every 2 years, by a specified amount, although more often if you improve the property, but it will always be cheap.

    Most tenants have been in a very long time and...

    Agree with above but if the property is in poor condition and the tenant elderly (or could be child of tenant who may be middle aged) then steer clear. I would definitely speak with the tenant.

    I’m looking at buying another property to rent out. The one I’m looking at has a tenant in situ. I have seen a copy of the AST and payments to the agents.
    Anyone have any experience of this please ?...

    Emailing means the person may or may not receive it, and if they do, they may or may not reply. I didn't want to wait around to find out if I do get a reply. I wanted to get a phone number.
    In any case, I managed to get hold of the Landlord via the business. The ball is now in his court.

    Next door property is being rented out and had the roof redone. Mine got damaged in the process.
    I'd like to contact the landlord/owner of the property next door to let him know and get his roofers back but I don't have his contact details.
    He's British but lives abroad. The phone number...

    If the property appears to be in good condition and the tenant has been in less than a year you should be able to avoid many of the possible problems.

    Ideally you would want the tenant to sign a new tenancy with you so you can be certain all documentation has been served correctly. If they...
