Tenancy Deposits:

As you can probably tell, this was not the first conversation Ben and I recorded!  We selected it to be shown first as deposits can be such a big problem for landlords and the rules are often misunderstood.

Further information about tenancy deposit protection is available from the three schemes’ websites:

For the benefit of legal pedants, note that strictly speaking a tenancy does not ‘run on’ as a periodic, the periodic tenancy is a new tenancy (called a statutory tenancy as it is there because s5 of the Housing Act 1988 says it is).  However colloquially it is common to refer to it as ‘running on’.

  1. Excellent and helpful. Shame Government are clearly trying to catch people out by, in many cases, not even giving a months notice on their changes in the law such as smoke detector/co alarm. New rent guidance notes for tenants etc. Most of us are not lawyers and struggle with Government’s sharp practice.
