    A periodic tenancy is exactly the solution. But how do I increase the rent in the future if I have a periodic tenancy. Do you then have to issue a new AST?
    No. Use Notice under s.13 of 1988 Act (unless AST itself contains a rent increase mechanism).

    The landlord indicated that they don't want to go through the hassle of the administration of registering for the new deposit scheme if he issues a new AST.

    A solution he may not have considered is that he doesn't issue a new AST and let it become a periodic tenancy. Therefore he doesn't require to go through TDS and can retain the original deposit to protect himself against risk.

    You legally arnt required to take a deposit but do you really want to take the risk? Ok, deposit registration is a bit time consuming but its free and its far better to have a depsoit than non at all - even the most reliable of tenants can change and I think for your time involved you might be glad of keeping the deposit should you ever have a problem. Also, the lack of a deposit might be seen as a green light to leave a property messy or dirty etc when your tenant vacates

    Returning a deposit is never the problem, unlike not returning it.
    There is no obligation to demand a deposit, either, so you should be OK.
