      A good competition would be to reduce the legislation, as it applies to landlords, to one accurate, intelligible paragraph.

        The regulations are subject to quantum uncertainty.
        By studying them, you cause them to change.

          Hey, steady on, there's at least 100 items of legislation impacting landlords (... plus case law....), and that''s just England: How would the legal profession survive if the law was simple, in one paragraph? What would we do with all those unemployed Judges and court staff??**

            If you are a landlord and are not 100% confident that you know what to do with a tenancy deposit when you receive it and within what time limits, do not accept tenancy deposits.

            • disrepair in the property falling under s.11 Landlord and Tenant Act
              by jitty22
              A property was let and managed by an estate agents. The tenants complained of some damp near windows in May 2020. But with the lockdown etc nothing was easy. The tenants have now gone to solicitors who have had a report done and the inspector has found some mould and some defects.

              the...

              The tenancy agreement hasn’t been signed by the prospective tenant and we haven’t signed it either....

              Hi, hope someone can help. If a tenancy has been offered and a draft tenancy issued but nothing has signed, can the landlord u-turn and change his mind (if he has found out that the prospective tenant has not been truthful)?

              Sure, technically you can withdraw the offer before the prospective tenant signs the contract, but as once stated by I think Lawcruncher on another thread, there's nothing you can do to stop the tenant from claiming they had already signed the contract by the time you inform them you are withdrawing...

              The problem for OP is that the Act says:



              OP did provide false or misleading information to the letting agent by their own admission.

              So it comes down to whether (b) applies. There's no temporal restrictions on when the information was provided or when the landlord...

            • Estate agent retaining holding deposit
              by Davethewave
              Hello all,

              I was in the final stages of closing on a rental property when i was informed that after further inspection of my financial situation, the landlord had rejected the offer.

              To secure the viewing, I overstated my income. I didn't think much of it at the time (it's...

              With the Tenant Fees Act, I think it doesn't really matter what either parties think the "holding deposit" is for. There's only so much the landlord or their agent can do with such a payment. They can only take one holding deposit, and they are required to return the holding deposit unless...

              The Tenant Fees Act says:

              "In this Act “holding deposit” means money which is paid by or on behalf of a tenant to a landlord or letting agent before the grant of a tenancy with the intention that it should be dealt with by the landlord or letting agent in accordance with Schedule...
