Deciding to rent out a property can be a daunting process. Unfortunately, many would-be landlords are unaware of the legal steps they must take when renting a property.
One of the most common oversights made by landlords is the failure to register the tenant’s deposit. Since the 6 April 2007, most landlords have been required to register any deposit from their tenant.
Failing to register a tenant’s deposit can result in a landlord having to pay their tenant up to three times the value of the deposit and can also make it far more costly and time-consuming for a landlord to regain possession of a rental property.
