    Hello this is my first time to go on any Forums so I may get things a bit wrong......

    My question is do I have to put my tenants deposit into the TDS if they are only going to stay for 3 months?
    I can't seem to be able to find this answer anywhere.
    Thank you

    No, you don't have to: As long as you are happy for them to be able to sue you for up to 3xdeposit & that any s21 would be invalid unless you returned it first....

    What makes you so confident they will go in 3 months time?? I'd not bank on tenants leaving at end of fixed term...
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


      If they're renting in England or Wales on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement, yes you do.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        When the tenant we took meter readings but subsequently forgot to register with a utility company. The only thing that may have accrued is a small amount of gas .
        Obviously I want to pay my dues.I believe the companies do pass on info between each other Thanks

        Can you not claim it on the insurance? Is the downstairs flat the freeholder of your flat and vice versa?

      • Leak into downstairs flat, am I liable?
        by Mwatson365

        I rent out an upstairs flat, which was a 1930s built house which has been converted into two flats. The water waste for the kitchen/bathroom goes out through the wall to outside. The downstairs flat, which is owned by a housing association, has an extension built at the back of the...

        Still enforce it. HCEOs aren't idiots and don't give up. If he has just signed the car over to his ex but still houses and uses it, they'll likely still seize it. Don't let him get away with anything, is my.opinion. But ask your solicitor....

        My possession claim is up for review today. I thought “ finally” . It was marked on review documentation to be at 12:00 05/11. I received no calls from anyone as yet. Could someone who has undergone review, please let me know if I have to make the call. I am worried that no one...

        I think may people have adjusted and take up new roles as courier drivers, or delivery drivers especially if they have their own vehicles. Within the gig economy has helped a lot of people in these difficult times.

        by JK0
        A worrying thought has occurred to me tonight. If furlough ends on 30th April, as I believe it's meant to, are we going to find loads more tenants unable to pay their rent?

        I know one of mine is a taxi driver, and I'm amazed he's managed to come up with the rent so far.

        Taxi drivers are still quite busy , people going shopping, doctors appts, hospital, work. My village just looks the same as normal its as busy as ever and so are the roads, only the pubs /cafes and hairdressers are closed along with the gym . The ones who are working from home and those who are furloughed...
