  • New deposit scheme???

    Hi
    Please can someone explain what this new deposit scheme is that's coming in in April... & how it works??
    I understand that landlords have to use some kind of insuarnce policy or something to protect the deposit, but who is going to run these, how will they work & how much will they cost??
    I can't seem to find anywhere the nitty gritty of the detail!

    Thanks

      Thanks Paul - really interesting site. But it refers to agents managing the property. What if you do it yourself and don't use an agent?

        Then you use the custodial scheme, instead of the insured scheme which will be for regulated agents; it will apply to all landlords and agents.

        At the moment we are waiting to see who will be running both schemes but it should be announced soon! Mind you it's been put back twice already so don't hold your breath!

          Makes sense - if the tenancy agreement doesn't say you have to let him and a surveyor in, his only right of access is with 24 hours written notice for the purpose of viewing the "condition and state of repair" of the property.

          So you can simply decline or make your point.

          I'm not trying to claim for breach of quiet enjoyment. He wants to be in again with a surveyor to use his property as security for something. I am going to let him I just want to remind him and have all the facts. Sorry if I didn't explain it right.

          Only claiming for the non protection...

          I pay the council tax, yes it is mortgaged. As far as I know he isn't pretending to live him and his family live in another house a few streets away....

        • HMO under Commercial Lease & homeowner wants to sell

          Long story short, someone I know (not close) needed money, I gave him 12 months reduced rent upfront to help him out and put a commercial lease on his HMo with right to sublet etc (my tenants).

          Few months in and his money problems are worse and the bank (and others) pressuring him to sell...

          Harassment is way more than a breach of quiet enjoyment, there has to be a level of distress in the harassed person.

          A retrospective claim for breach of quiet enjoyment is probably a non-starter - breach of quiet enjoyment is part of the kitchen sink people throw when they're claiming compensation...

          And although as jpkeates suggests you have a right to turn them away and force a court order, this does not mean they have breached your right to quiet enjoyment.

          It means you are refusing to honour your AST and the landlord Is forced to apply to court to make you legally comply. Again,...

          Many thanks for the reply. Yes, my company has leased the HMO in question under commercial lease but it's not registered at land registry as it's only a 12 month lease.

          Tenants are friends so less of am issue as such but they'll be outside of their 6 months by the time of any would be...
