    Can a Pet Deposit be used for Rent arrears

    Please can you help, I have a tenant with Rent arrears, they paid a security deposit and a pet deposit, can the pet deposit be used for the rent arrears?

    Does the tenant agree?

    Is the deposit protected in a scheme?

      If this 'pet deposit' was taken specifically as security for pet damage then you can't use it for anything else unless tenant agrees to it (in any case tenant must agree to deductions to a deposit, or you have to agree to arbitration of go to court).

        It all depends on the wording within your AST and does not need the tenant's permission usually.
        The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.
