    AST tenants' deposit scheme requirements

    Hi
    I heard on the radio that from April all landlords have to place the tenants deposits in to a goverment fund, i didnt catch the web site they said to look it up on, any one give me the web address
    Thanks

    It's only for new tenancies created after 5 April. There's plenty of information on this site from the link at the top of this page - you only have to look! "Paying tenants deposit into goverment fund"
    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.

      Is it to late to pay deposit in to scheme ?

      Hi

      Can you tell me, is it possibble to still pay a deposit to the deposit scheme months after tenants have moved in to the property, ordo you have to wait until the next tenant comes along. Also wht would happen if you wanted to evict someone whom you hadn,t protected the money from the deposit, could they stay put for ever?

        If your tenants are about to leave the property, return the deposit in full, now.

        If not, secure it in one of the schemes ASAP; You won't be able to issue a S21 notice until the deposit is protected, and you're leaving yourself open to court action.

            It's always best to simply use the thread you started earlier:

            Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

                Four threads by the same member have been merged here. Please do not start a new thread if you merely wish to continue a previous discussion or report on subsequent developments. It can cause unnecessary confusion (quite apart from losing the connection with facts previously established or legal points previously explained).

                    I'm rather confused, too. What's the 2010 question you're asking?

                      I think it might be this thread.

                        Where I rent properties (Beds / Northants / Nottingham) rents have risen substantially and availability has fallen. So my question is still, 6 months on from everyone being told to stay at home and with normality of work returning for many tenants (I accept not all) and many people not unduly financially...

                        I cancelled all my annual rent increases when Covid hit. Since then some people have really suffered financially and others haven’t. In addition LHA rates have increased substantially for anyone needing support which appears to have had the knock on effect of increasing the rent of properties now...

                        I did consider approaching a Tracing Agent to try to obtain the Tenant's current whereabouts or updated information about them but the feeling is that it is not worth initiating this yet as its too soon. They may not show-up as having set-up elsewhere yet or have generated updated information about...

                        The tenancy is a statutory periodic tenancy after the original AST ended. The tenant has rent arrears and a S21 was issued around 3 months ago. There is no deposit and an EPC, gas safety certificate and how to rent guide were all issued previously to the tenant.

                        I believe that the tenant...

                        You can prevent the landlord from entering, as you have a right to quiet enjoyment, you can even replace the locks if you would like.

                        In turn, the landlord could issue you a section 21 notice, but the notice period is 6 months currently plus the court backlog.

                        Hello,

                        I am having A LOT of trouble with my LL who is continually asking to carry out improvements on the property. It is literally nonstop and it has got to the stage where I am utterly fed up and want to leave.

                        During my tenancy he has replaced all the windows in the house,...

                        In my part of London there is no market justification for rent increases and imo increased individual landlord costs is not a reason to raise them....

                        These are very interesting comments, one of my councils (South West) told me they had to stop these services unless in public areas.

                        I have a tenant who has reported that he can here rats in the walls and ceiling of his 4th floor apartment. He says there are other complaints on the tenants facebook group. I have messaged the maintenance company (Name removed) but they are not replying. Just wanted to check who is liable, I'm assuming...

                        I contacted my council and the rat man came out a couple of hours later with a T shaped tube thing full of blue grain which he put behind some bushes in the garden. It was free. I've not seen any rats since but the blue grain is going down. Apparently slugs and mice will also eat the bait....
