    How much to deduct from deposit

    Property Location: Scotland
    Tenant's Date Of Entry: 20th Feb 2021
    Tenant Serving 28 Days Notice to Landlord on 1st March : Reason given the property does not have dish washer and he missed to verify when came for viewing. Tenant did call me couple of days before handling over notice if I could give him dishwasher. I told him there is not enough room in Kitchen (or anywhere else) to install it.
    Silly Question: His month finishes on 19th March and leaving property on 28th March. Should I deduct only 9 days rent from his deposit OR 28day after his month finishes on 19th March?

    I need to check when they can give notice, not sure if it's straight away or after 28 days .. will check later.

    When does his notice -if valid - expire? As long as that is no earlier than when he leaves that's fine, I would expect him to pay rent, pro-rated, to that day.

    Deposit deductions only after checkout inspection and discussion with tenant, as per scheme, plus any unpaid rent.

    This should be in Scottish subforum.

    For English readers yes Scottish PRT tenants have no fixed term, 28 days notice.

      Thanks @theartfullodger

      In Scotland - agreement says Tenant can give 28 days notice at any time
      Sorry - what do you mean by Notice expire? He give 28 days notice on 1st March, which means 28th March should be his last day. Is that what you mean?

      How can we move this thread to Scottish forum?

        How exactly was notice worded? If eg "I'm thinking of leaving DD/mm" probably invalid but if served on you 2nd march but dated 1st march to end tenancy 28th that's not 28 days...

        Can't remember exact wording in act, I will check with shelter Scotland legal website later (out walking)

            Can that be called as proper notice?
