Renting? Avoid Losing your Deposit
01 April 2019
When renting any property, whether residential or commercial, the vast majority of the time you will be required to put up a deposit in order to guarantee against damage or unpaid rent. The exact amount will vary, but the process is generally the same each time: the deposit will be returned at the end of the tenancy, minus any amount used to cover damage and cleaning not already done. Despite new laws introduced in 2007 to help protect renters and their deposits in the form of the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme (TDP), landlords still retain certain rights when it comes to withholding part or all of a deposit from a tenant. So if you’re moving house from a rented property, be sure to take some time to avoid losing your deposit.
