    No End of tenancy inspection

    I have a friend who is moving out at the end of her tenancy today.

    The agent has said (by phone) they cannot do the inspection today, nor can the landlord, and so my friend should simply return...

    I hadn't spotted the FAQ referred to in post #22 above. That clearly says there's no need to take any action on the deposit when extending the tenancy.

    Having thought about it, I too am not...

    I agree, though that was the advice on "how to re-protect" given to me by the DPS. The findings of the case above determine only that the deposit was deemed to have been re-paid and re-submitted (to...

    Whilst subsequent court cases may give further clarification, I think the consensus (and especially the case in post#22 above) shows that the deposit needs to be re-protected and new PI issued at the...

    Maybe 're-protection' relates more to deposit insurance schemes (which I don't use). Do those (unlike the custodial scheme) have a fixed end-point, and therefore need extending? Other than the fact...

    Deposit re-protection

    One of my tenancies has come to the end of the AST and has now started a SPT. I know, following Superstrike, I need to re-protect the deposit and re-issue the PI, but what do I do to "re-protect"...

    If that's the case (ie: STP = new tenancy, therefore needs re-issue of PI), surely that logic would require the original deposit to be returned and a new deposit taken (though not in that order)...

    Can a tenant withdraw notice to leave?

    I have a tenant on a 6-month AST who has given written intent that he does not intend to stay beyond the initial term.

    I have re-advertised the property, am undertaking viewings and will no doubt...

    Re the Notice to Sublet renewal fee, it might depend on how you manage your 'renewals'. As the end of the AST period, we let our lettings evolve into Statutory Periodic Tenancies and so (following...
