    Does the deposit have to be re-protected and the prescribed information issued every time a new tenancy is signed?

      Not with the Deposit Protection Service. The others I have no idea.
      Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

        Hi MorningGirl
        Its not necessary to sign a new contract with/without the 1 month notice clause as by the sounds of it you have an understanding landlord who is happy to receive payment as normal from you until early next year when you will give her 1 months notice- I should think that all she is concerned about is that you continue to pay and provide a reasonable notice period- it should also be in her interest not to sign into a new contract for the sake of a month/two as there will be a fee to her also for providing a new AST.
        The only winner here is the agent who is likely to receive fees from both yourself/ landlord.

        The Lettings Agent is acting on behalf of the landlord but if the landlord doesn't insist you move out there is nothing they can do; if in the unlikely circumstances that the landlord insists you sign a new agreement either either sign on the basis that you can provide one months notice to end at any point or refuse to sign- In this event the landlord would have to provide you with a Section 21 notice & provide a minimum of 2 months notice.
        This is worst case scenario & I am sure that with the good relationship you have direct with the Landlord & as it benefits you both not to pay further agent fees that this wont be necessary.

        I hope this helps.

            MrShed
            I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

            I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

            We can trade with anyone.
            What matters is the terms we trade on.

            Currently we're beyond screwed.

            That's two questions.

            First, no.
            Second, no.

            The EU trades with China on the basis that no personal data is migrated, same as the USA....

            So the EU requires anyone it trades with at the moment to comply with all the laws the EU complies with? Erm, doesn't most stuff come from China nowadays?...

            Hi, new to the forum and relatively new to letting. My situation is:

            Couple view house, like it etc, seem OK to me. She's full time employed, he's currently unemployed but looking to start his own business as a tattoo artist. Still ok-ish. They pay me £100 holding deposit and £100 referencing...

            Thanks. I've binned them off. The ref co said what she earns won't cover it. TBH I don't know why I tried. I've offered her the holding deposit in full plus whatever I get back from uklandlord referencing.co (I paid them £140 - 110 for one reference and 1 year RGI and 30 for second reference, so basically...

            Hi all, need some advice please.

            I'm in the process of letting my flat out but am struggling to work out exactly what type of tenancy I should be using, from my research I believe it should be a form of Excluded resident landlord tenancy but I can't seem to find a suitable template as...

            Hi, thanks for that, so would it make a difference if I offer shared use of the main bathroom and not just limit the tenant to their en-suite in their self contained section?
            Also can I ask recommendation regarding best way of handling council tax?

            I assume their are existing templates...
