    No deposit required how to dispute

    My landlord did not charge me a deposit upon moving in. I thought it was a great idea at first. Now I am really concerned. The landlord made note and told us of things that needed to be fixed and upkept. Now we are 26 days from moving out and I feel when final expection the landlord will still try to charge us. Is there any help for tennants upon move out that you can even hire to dispute unnecessary disceptancys with landlord on tennant behalf?

    How can he charge you or make you pay if you never paid a deposit. If he does try to charge you for things which you consider wrong then don't pay. Did you not heed his instructions? If he really feels that strongly he will go to the small claims court to settle the matter - but I doubt he will.

      Did you have an inventory?

        The onus is on your landlord to prove any damages so like MrjohnnyB asks above if there is no inventory that you have signed, photos etc then its going to be very hard for your LL to prove the damages if he has no proof of the condition when you moved in.

          You could simply say to them that from XXXX date the property will not be let as is has been sold....... that is all you say, no mention of the buyers being the in-situ tenants.

          Hi, hoping you good people may be able to give me some advice 🙂

          i have a rental property that I am now looking to sell. I am interested in selling to my tenants and have been looking at my contract with my letting agents to see if there are any consequences of this.

          There’s...

          Thanks for both your replies.

          It was fully managed.

          yes I do plan to speak to agent. My concern is they will try and use it as leverage to insert themselves in the sale process. Just wondered if anyone else has hit anything similar?

          The original arrangement with the tenants, was it ia fully managed or tenant find only arrangement ? I have done this a few times on a tenant find basis and let all my AST's go periodic (so the tenants stay), i have paid zero to every agent, and they have never been knocking asking for any money.

          With regards to keep or sell. Those 4 properties are not just assets, but you need to see them as say children, which need looking after. You can't switch off because you are busy. It is 24/7 responsibility, as you are responsible for the property and the health and safety of the people living. If...

          Almost anything beats working for a living.

          Running a portfolio is just as demanding and stressful. If someone worked in an office, it is a 9 to 5 job. Their taxes are paid by their employer.


          Running a portfolio of properties, can be demanding. Even with agents in place....

          Becoming a landlord because you've inherited some property makes about as much sense as inheriting several cars and setting up a taxi business.
