  • Reply to Deposit protection responsibilities
    by DPT57
    I may be mis-remembering, but my recollection is that it has been discussed on here several times that an agent who collects and has responsibility for the deposit is equally liable for the penalty if the legislation is breached. I have always assumed that to be the case.

  • Deposit protection responsibilities
    by Lawcruncher
    Looking at the HA 2004 in connection with another thread I noted that section 219(2)(a) provides: "In this Chapter [that is the section of the Act relating to tenancy deposits] references to a landlord or landlords in relation to any shorthold tenancy or tenancies include references to a person...

  • Reply to Deposit protection responsibilities
    by Lawcruncher
    Wherever in chapter 4 "landlord" appears it has to be read as:"the landlord or a person or persons acting on his or their behalf in relation to the tenancy",

    The Act says that section 214(4) applies if the court (a) is satisfied that section 213(3) or (6) has not been...

  • Reply to Deposit protection responsibilities
    by jpkeates
    As I read the legislation, any person receiving a deposit has to comply with the legislation, but the only people who can be sanctioned for not doing so are the landlord(s) (s214).

    The s214 sanctions apply to s213(3) and (6) only, both of which apply to landlords who receive tenancy deposits...

  • Reply to Deducting Cleaning Costs from Deposit
    by Piffy
    I now believe that one of the tenants had Covid just before vacating and was in a period of Self Isolation, perhaps this is why the Agents suggest a "Deep Clean" to protect the next tenant. It would also explain why when the next tenant was due to move in, our Letting Agent put the tenancy...

  • Deducting Cleaning Costs from Deposit
    by Piffy
    I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

    Just to clarify, what I meant was that the requirement comes from the tenancy terms if they include it....

  • Reply to Inherited a few rentals
    by Flashback1966
    or just work hard and hopefully take an early retirement.

    You can't predict the future. Things always go in cycle. They want to get rid of Section 21, so you may be unable to get your property back. You may end up working and subsidising your rentals....
