    This is not about compensation. You can only get compensation for actual losses. This is a penalty, much like a criminal court fine, except that it is handled by civil processes and the money goes to the tenant, not to the State....

    Hello everyone

    I have a question regarding the deposit protection in the UK since I am an exchange student from Germany.

    Today I received an email that my tenancy deposit is now secured by a tenancy deposit scheme. So far so good.
    Right after that, I got another email...

    If you are having to lodge multiple deposits each month then presumably you are an agent lodging them for multiple Landlords?
    In which case you are already charging the landlord for the work, so employ a part timer to do them once a week.

    Or you have a very large portfolio of your...

    If I lodged deposits weekly rather than every twenty five days I would have to spend four times as long lodging deposits.

    40 working days would have been a far more sensible time frame and allow larger landlords and agents to lodge a months batch at a time.

    I would add that...

    I believe we have been through all of this before in previous threads.

    1- If you are setting a time limit you have to set it somewhere, and a month would seem to be plenty of time.
    Wherever you set that limit there are always going to be those who leave things as late as possible...

    Two points:

    I think people who have to lodge a lot of deposits will recognise that the current system has not taken them into account. My understanding is that the Council of Letting Agents are currently advising agents to lodge deposits every 25 days. This is not working days this is actual...

    Would you like to try that excuse if you were summoned for driving 36 mph in a 30 mph zone and see how far it would get you?

    A legal limit is a legal limit, if you exceed that limit then you have broken the law and must accept the consequences if caught....

  • Eviction to live in the property
    by Edin1983
    I have a property rented to tenants in Scotland for 1 year but want to move back in early.

    I want to evict on the grounds that we will be living there.

    The contract however is between our Ltd company and the tenant.

    Does this pose a problem given that the LL...
