    Custodial with DPS. We agreed beforehand and I contacted DPS but tenant has not contacted them. That is why I am chasing her. No funds will be distributed until she agrees.

    Ok so the TDS has time limits right? Assuming this is a custodial protection the LL has applied to the TDS for a portion of the deposit to be paid to them. I would have thought the TDS will write to each party notifying them of this and set time limits to respond and if any party fails to respond the TDS distributes the deposit??

    Just leave it, its not up to you to chase the tenant. You have agreed a deduction which as been applied the rest of the deposit has been returned so its up to the tenant now, why are you chasing the T?

    Was this a custodial or insured deposit protection?

    I have been messaging tenant but she just replies that she is overwhelmed with move, etc and doesn't respond to dps. I just don't know what next step is if she continues not to bother to act. We have agreed on amount to come to me (landlord) and what amount will be refund to her. (Tenant) by message. She no longer lives locally so I can't visit her in person to discuss.

    Tenancy Deposit Scheme

    I have agreed distribution of deposit with tenant and submitted same to Deposit Scheme. To date, tenant has not responded to Deposit Scheme to formally agree. What is my next step?

    I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
    I do not intend to live at the property
    Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

    You can thank the tenant with a dog I did let to in the past for now being reluctant to let to other people with dogs and probably cats too.

    The fact your income comes for 100% benefits isn’t a hard no though as long as you are able to pass affordability....

    i have just read an interesting summary of all that is proposed in the EG (Estates Gazette). As drafted it effectively brings back a form of rent control as tenants will have the right to go to First Tier Tribunal to challenge any rent increases which must be proposed by section 13 notices.

    You’re not though are you? You’re getting these people to rent the property because you’ll be living overseas. The property will cease to be your only if main home.

    Maybe you’ll get away with pretending these people are lodgers and these people will move out the property when you...

    Sounds like the power has gone to their heads Can't you, or rather the tenants, have some fun? Well placed boobie traps or a fierce dog perhaps?

    Just had letter from London Borough of ****** saying they will be inspecting my house at some time in the next 28 days to ensure licence compliance. No further notice will be given and tenants are expected to grant access to all areas, windows to be left open for air supply, and doors all left open...

    You would be creating an issue for yourself, you want to be able to evict a T (for whatever reason) which do not have the same rights as a T on an AST, the problem would be that you would have 2 T's who would have evidence etc, that you never lived there while they lived there...... When someone is...

    It crosses my mind that if you install something that doesn't comply with regulations - eg a rope flush against the wall - then you might be more likely to be opening yourself up to a claim than if you'd left the stairs as they were when you bought the house....
