Tenancy Deposit Protection FAQs

What is tenancy deposit protection?

From 6th April 2007, the legislation surrounding all new tenancy deposits was amended. The law states that all new tenancy deposits must be protected by one of the three government-backed tenancy deposit protection schemes (TDP).

The government wants to protect deposits so that a tenant receives all or part of their deposit back, as well as making disputes between landlords and tenants easier to resolve. Deposit protection also aims to encourage tenants to look after the property they are renting.

What happens when a tenant moves in?

When a tenant is about to move into the property they will need to pay a deposit (typically one month’s rent) which the landlord or letting agent will need to ensure is protected. The landlord will need to choose one of the three providers listed above. The Deposit Protection Service holds the money in a scheme until the end of the tenancy. The other two providers are insurance-based. There is a fee for this type of scheme to insure against the failure to repay monies due to the tenant.

The landlord or agent must provide the tenant with details of how their deposit is being protected within 30 days. It will include contact details of the landlord and the deposit provider, how to apply for a release of the deposit and information explaining why a deposit was needed to begin with.

What are the tenants’ responsibilities?

The tenant is responsible for making sure that the property is left in the same condition, as described in the inventory, as it was when the tenancy started, allowing for general wear and tear. New tenants are always made aware of their responsibilities and that there may be a claim against their deposit if they are unable to maintain their responsibilities.

What is an inventory and why do I need it?

Before every new tenancy, a full inventory of the property should be completed, preferably by a professional inventory firm, which includes photographs and highly specific details of its condition. VeeZed can arrange this for you, please call for more information and click here for the price. (Link to prices) The inventory is an additional cost to landlords when letting a property and is highly recommended for the benefit of both tenant and landlord as it will help to resolve any disputes much more quickly and easily, especially if carried out by an independent firm. There will be an initial inventory and ‘check in’ which is usually paid for by the landlord, and a ‘check out’, the cost of which is often charged to the tenant on moving out.

What happens when a tenant moves out?

When a tenancy ends, the state of the property should be checked against the inventory, (called ‘check out’) ideally by the inventory firm. Within 10 days of the end of the tenancy, the landlord should agree with the tenant how much of their deposit should be returned. After everything has been agreed, the tenant will receive what they are owed.

What if there is a dispute?

There is a free adjudication service to help resolve disputes about how much deposit should be returned. The disputed part of the deposit is held until the dispute is resolved.

 

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) FAQs

What is an energy performance certificate?

Whenever a property has been built, sold or rented an energy performance certificate (EPC) will be required. The landlord must order an EPC from an accredited assessor before the property is marketed to potential buyers and tenants. VeeZed can arrange this for you, please call for more information.

Buildings that don’t require an EPC include places of worship, industrial sites, holiday accommodation / residential properties that are used for less than 4 months of the year and listed buildings.

What information does an EPC contain?

An EPC contains energy use and typical energy costs information about the property. It will also recommend ways to reduce energy use and save money.

How long is an EPC valid for?

10 years. The EPC will give an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). Once the EPC becomes invalid a new certificate will be required.

 

Gas Safety Checks FAQs

What is a Gas Safety Check?

The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 refers to the landlords’ duty to provide safe gas appliances and fittings to its tenants. A gas engineer registered with the Gas Safe Register must carry out the checks. VeeZed can arrange this for you, please call for more information and click here for the price. (Link to prices) There are three main responsibilities to address when letting a property, which are maintenance, gas safety checks, and record.

What are the responsibilities of the landlord?

Pipeworks, appliances, and flues must be maintained in a safe condition. A 12 monthly gas safety check is required on every gas appliance/flue and a record of the annual gas safety check must be provided to the tenants within 28 days of the checks being completed. It will also need to be provided to new tenants moving in. It is the landlords’ duty to keep copies pf the gas safety record for two years.

What if I’m only letting for a short period of time?

Even if the property is being rented out for a week during the holiday, it will still need a gas safety check. As a landlord, you have specific duties in terms of gas safety.
