    Deposit - when is Rent next Due

    1 months Rent deposit and 1 months Rent as a damage deposit, will be paid on signing as A.S.Tenancy.

    Does this mean that the next Rent will be due on the next Month, or is it paid on the month they move in?

    If 1 months rent + 1 month deposit then next rent due one month after tenant moves in.
    If 1 months rent deposit + 1 months damage deposit then rent due on the day tenants move in (presuming contract says rent in advance). An amount = to 2 months rent needs to be protected in a government approved scheme.

    You need to ask the landlord exactly what the requirement is - it is not clear and it would be beneficial for both parties if it was clarified.


      Damage deposit is to be secured in a scheme - see my reply to your other post.

      Month's rent in advance covers the first month's rent. Next rent payment is due at start of 2nd month.


        Thank you very much, that explains it very well

          Just thought I'd update this and summarise. Thanks for all replies so far and apologies if what I am saying is confusing (some of it doesn't really make sense to me either).

          I think you've done all you can in the situation including what many would not in offering your own facilities. I think, given the T's circumstances she would have been in her right to argue for some reduction in rent due to the inconvenience of not having all that she paid for. Perhaps you could negotiate...

          by tedcbe
          Hi I have a tenant who has checked into a hotel due to the fact that the boiler broke down and says she will reduce the amount in the next month’s rent.
          I have never agreed for her to check into a hotel in the first place.
          She reported there is an issue with the heating on Sunday night...

          Hi all ex tenant here, hoping someone can help as I can't find a lot of concrete advice online. Basically, I ended a very stressful tenancy in Aug 2019. There was a lot of back and forth, unclear info, and formal complaints, plus at the end of the tenancy they scalped us with deposit deductions. Just...

          It is worth seeking with a no win no fee firm in this scenario. I would offer my opinion to say that the LA were remiss in not providing you with the deposit information. How were you to know the details contained within the Prescribed Info?
          It sounds as if some short cuts were taken by the...
