      Hence the need to charge a minimum of 6 weeks rent as a deposit to stop tennants trying to default on a months rent and leaving no money to cover any damages.

      I'd seriously pursue any tennant of mine who tried to duck out of the last months rent..

        You would struggle to pursue them if you HAD the rent in the form of the deposit...

        You could pursue them for damages, IF you can prove them. But pursuing for the rent if you have the deposit and no damages is doomed to failure.

          But if you treat your tenats with respect and are fair regarding any issue like repairs etc. it's unlikely they'll use the deposit as rent because they'll know that you're unlikely to rip them off.
          This isn't true for all landlords unfortunately and tenants have to protect themselves somehow.

            Agreed but I'm sure you're not like this posters Landlord - who rather leaves this OP with no other choice.

            From a tenants point of view, some LL's are unsscrupulous and withold the deposit for absolutely no good reason. This LL sounds like one of them.

              Next time my tenants give notice I'll try to kick them out three weeks early instead. Makes sense.

              Hi All, I have been living in the same house for 7 years and have just been served a form 6A giving 4 months notice to vacate. The owner is returning from overseas and wants to live in the house. Whilst disappointed I get that this is one of the perils of renting but it has raised a few questions. ...

              Do you not have a managing agent?

              I'm going to keep this short as its a long story. I have a tenant who signed the new tenancy contract on 15th June and then on 27th June I received about 20-25 messages and pictures the evening saying the flat was unliveable due to pests and that he had only moved in the night before. I went round to...

              Yes, they have a demo account where you can play with £75,000 ($100,000)

              I did put $10k into one copy on April 4th and its now on a profit of $4,915, so nearly 50% in just under 4 months.

              I guess as Im only playing, I should "invest" all the funds and see how they...

              I will post here but it may get moved - but at least it gets a bit of exposure to begin with lol

              I've used a platform called etoro for 2 or 3 years to hold shares in some cruise stocks (don't laugh) - mainly because we do 4 or 5 cruises a year and the shareholder benefits can be quite handy....

              Has he paid the rent on June 15th and then again on July 15th?

              Sounds obvious but have you double checked you have done all the correct paperwork and deposit registration/certificate - triple check it !!

              Personally, going forward I would not liaise with the tenant in any way...

              Even if you were my opinion would stay the same, i think that given it is a converted house the noise isolation and other issues are not the same as separate purpose built flats, so having one as a rental will have far more of an impact upon the other owners who live there. It really is a one way street...

              Not sure if this is the best section to post in, so please move if it is considered best place elsewhere.

              I have had ownership of a flat, one of just four in a converted house, for many years. There is a simple flat management structure; the four owners are directors and have one share...

              This is not my understanding - perhaps others can clarify. I thought you had to give your usual notice if you were leaving before the end of the LLs notice period....
