    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.

                        I posted elsewhere on here and feedback was a mix of its not worth it as nothing will happen (plus police will treat as a tenancy issue) and its worth doing to get a crime number.

                        Our property was let part furnished however upon leaving the Ex. tenant took it upon himself to relieve us of the white goods and wooden blinds.

                        The dishwasher, washing machine, 2 x fridge freezers and wooden blinds throughout were actually ones purchased when the property was our main...

                        A 15 year old washing machine has almost zero value (and will have less when you move out).
                        The landlord can only legitimately claim for their loss if you bin it.

                        A mid range washing machine is about £350 (and they haven't changed much in price recently), and imagining one would...

                        We've recently rented a house that from the very start seemed badly taken care of - there were various problems like a mouldy washing machine/curtains, broken curtain rails, etc. When we arrived to meet the inventory clerk, we signed a 2-page document of handwritten inventory notes (we broadly agreed...

                        This is very helpful, MdeB, thank you. I will try to relax about the inventory now. In regards to the mould - the landlord has a letter from the curtain cleaning company stating that the mould has been "killed" during the cleaning. I actually spoke with the curtain cleaner when he was here...

                        The process seems to have changed recently.
                        The landlord claims from the deposit and that claim should have a summary of what they are claiming and why.
                        You dispute that and then you both have one chance to explain your side of the story.
                        But you do that with only access to what the...

                        I am moving out of my rented home shortly, i have caused some damage which I notified the landlord of when it happened and they have recently visited to discuss the cost of repairs, which we have agreed.

                        Every notice escalated to court is recorded and the figures published quarterly, so breaking out the s21 notices from the s8 shouldn't be complicated.

                        Two of the links are to House of Commons research papers, to be fair!...

                        When a new tenant moves into a property, I get them to sign a section 21 so that if whatever reason things don’t work out, the necessary paperwork is already in place.
                        I’ve never had a need to exercise this yet, but would it work?...
