Customer Question

Is it necessary to protect a deposit and supply the essential prescribed information for a assured shorthold tenancy which was created before 2007 and expired becoming a statutory periodic tenancy also before 2007? No notices have ever been served or the rent altered.

Hi there,

Thanks for your enquiry.

 

If the Tenancy commenced before 6th April 2007 and it has never been renewed (which you say it hasn't), then the Tenant's Deposit does not have to be registered under a Government backed Tenant's Deposit Scheme.

 

I hope this answers your question, but please let me know if you require any further clarification.

 

Kind Regards

AL
