    Hello all,

    I'm hoping those of you with much more experience could help me out. I've been reviewing the way in which i manage my tenancy's and im thinking of no longer taking deposits and instead just bringing rent up to market value. Obviously there is both pros and cons to this idea...

    I am always wondering the wisdom of not charging a deposit.

    Sure there are less work involved, and creates less hassel, so far nearly always returned the full deposit.

    The deposit for me acts like a gate for tenant fiance, having deposit to pay usually means the tenants has...

    Good Evening Everyone,

    Please see the below.

    Q1 – Where is the rented property located (England / Wales / Scotland / N Ireland)? - England

    Q2 – What type of Tenancy Agreement (TA) is this e.g. sole tenant / multiple tenant / room only? - Multiple Tenants (2

    The answer is something you will have to agree with your landlord.
    The solution was not to have made an adjustment when the rent payment moved.

    While it's sensible to coincide paying rent with getting paid (which is usually why the date moved), the best solution is to leave the rent...

    Best strategy for keeping voids down and tenants staying longer is to charge the right rent and keep things in a decent state of repair.
    Or allow pets and/or prioritise tenants with school age children.

    Thanks for the replies - really helpful.

    The ex and I are still on good speaking terms so that side won't be a problem.

    I will speak to the landlord as we are also on good terms and hopefully, we can come to an arrangement.

    Lastly, how is the rent apportioned...

    Thank you both for your responses, so i would be able to offer both options when showing around prospective tenants? The reason for below market rate is to lower void periods and keep good tenants in situ for longer or at least i like to think thats how it works....

    I agree with jpkeates. Properties should be let at the market rents if you're running a business. You're allowed to set the rent as you see fit. The only chance of it ever being likely to become a problem is if after 12 months you elect to increase the rent using a s13 notice to a sum so far in excess...
