    the law appears to be very frustrating for us landlards....
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        circumstances when all or part of the deposit may be retained by LL, please insert relevant clause reference below - have i got to enter all the clauses from the AST, surely there are lots and doesn't seem enough space etc.
        Frankly the whole form sounds like a joke. A landlord would need to include any circumstances at all where he would make a deduction. The list could run to pages.

          The agency is working with the council, they get paid from the council by placing social tenants in the property for a fixed period of time.
          Let's hope the phrase 'social tenants' is not an oxymoron.

            Vet your tenants, and if you think you've vetted them enough, vet them some more.
            Castrate them, and sterilise them?

              thanks for that...I knew I should have used the word "check" !

                  Is there a downstairs toilet/ bedroom? If so it may only be guests going upstairs.
                  Unless they are staying the night, I make my guests 'go' downstairs.

                    Any reason why you wouldn't sue the tenant or recover costs from deposit??
                    Because even if you supply photos before & after tenancy, you are usually awarded buttons?

                        While I do like a good sit down myself, I wouldn't go so far as to say I was a fan. (That would sound a bit kinky).

                          Is your landlord a Vampire?

                            that's a very clever washing machine.

                              Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this.

                              Does the fact that we didn’t use the mortice lock mean that the landlord isn’t liable for the repair cost and if so where does it state this?

                              Possibly relevant is that the burglar wouldn’t have known that the mortice lock wasn’t working prior to attempting to break in?
                              The last paragraph tickled me. Flat would likely still be secure if mortice lock was engaged.

                              Anyone ever know a tenant to put the mortice lock on though?

                                Its simply about the PROCESS of selecting a tenant is what I'm trying to find out; nothing to do with choosing a human being at all.
                                I don't think o/p has a very high opinion of tenants.

                                  My statistics for the top 3 breeds, enquiring tenants have in West Yorkshire and can't rent anywhere - Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Rottweiler. German Shepherd.

                                  I have had a look at the Act and cannot see anything in the list of "Consumer contract terms which may be regarded as unfair" which obviously applies. An important provision though is the one which says: "A term which has the object or effect of irrevocably binding the consumer to terms...

                                  Im pretty sure it was added to the unfair terms which comes under the consumer rights act 2015.

                                  i know the RLA tenancy agreements were changed from no pets to “any request in wiriting for a pet will not be unreasonably refused.” or something along those lines....

                                  I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

                                  Junker and Barnier haven't made any claims that the Britain needs to be in the EU to eat, breathe and have toilet paper.
                                  They have only ever pointed out that being in the EU benefits its members (which they would, they believe that being in the EU is better than not being in the EU - and they...

                                  I bet you guys know what I mean by pilot error.

                                  It's when your tenant calls you out saying something is faulty when they don't know how to use it. Today the lady who couldn't open her Washer Dryer a couple of months ago called to tell me that the heater in her spare room wasn't working....

                                  He moved in 1st Feb, so should not have to pay any council tax until 1st April!

                                  Junker and Barnier tell people that Britain needs to be in the EU in order to exist, eat, breathe and have enough toilet paper (oh and to avoid WW3) and you believe them!
