View Full Version : rent over £25K

I am a landlord who has rented a house to 8 students and signed an AST for a rental over £25k. I understand this should not be AST, it should be a common law tenancy but it is now halfway into the tenancy. Do I need to still register the deposit? Or do I have the tenants sign a common law agreement?

No, becasue deposit protection applies only to an AST.
NOTE: you cannot let to eight people on one Agreement in any event. See http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?p=167564#post167564
