Atkinson McLeod - June 2015 Newsletter

We bring you news about one of the capital’s fastest-growing scams where it was recently reported that fraudulent tenants allegedly impersonated their landlords then claiming the deposits and re-letting homes at inflated rents. 

Our next news story talks about the new Deregulation Act.  We hope it’s helpful as it reminds landlords that more tenancy deposits are now under deposit protection law if received before 6 April 2007 and if the tenancy was renewed on a periodic basis after that date.  So if you fall into this group you’ll need to register deposits now in a government approved scheme otherwise fines may be imposed.  

On a more upbeat note we conclude with some interesting facts from market research firm BDRC Continental whose survey with 500 private rental sector tenants gives views and opinions on their current tenancy and future aspirations in terms of housing.

Best regards,

Giles Atkinson and Dan McLeod
