  • Deductions from tenancy deposit
    nick_noal
    Hi folks,

    I have just had a tenant move out of one of my properties and I have conducted the move out inspection. There is no major damage in the property and everything is in working condition. However the tenant has a young child and the decorative order of the property has been affected...

  • Does deposit cover rent?
    Lawcruncher
    A tenancy agreement contains the following provision:

    The landlord may make reasonable deductions from the deposit for any damage or costs incurred, or as provision for unsettled bills

    Does that cover rent? I do not think it does since rent is not any of damage, costs or an...

  • Change in offer letter conditions
    Amnesiac
    Hi all

    I signed an offer letter in order for the agency to submit my offer to the landlord of a property on the market for renting.

    The offer letter states that the deposit will be protected under the agency's membership of the deposit scheme.
    I have now received a communication...

    There seems to be 2 different deposits here.

    The tenancy deposit is to cover any damage to the property at the end of the tenancy and has to be protected by law, and it is to your advantage if that is done by the LL rather by the agent. (For various reasons).

    Any holding deposit...

    No I don't think that's right unless there is evidence to suggest the landlord is not going to protect the deposit. It is possible he favours a scheme the letting agents don't use and so he does the admin protection himself. Is it materially changing the terms of the contract? I'm not sure it is, although...

  • tenant with 3 kids
    abc777uu
    Hi,
    My current tenant has 2 kids and living in my 2 bed flat.
    the kids are a 5 years old girl and a 6 months old baby boy.
    recently, I came to know that the tenant’s wife is pregnant.
    by law, can they stay in 2 bed flat with 3 kids?

    Please advise.
    Thanks...

    According to the shelter links, yes.

    It seems that if the property was not overcrowded when they moved in, then they can have as many children thereafter as they like and it will not become overcrowded.

    However, if there is selective licencing, then it may be overcrowded according...
