We are looking to issue a section 8 and 21 on a tenant who has not paid their deposit or any rent but has made a small partial payment.

We do not know whether to treat this payment as contribution towards the deposit and submit to DPS or to treat this as a partial payment towards the rent.

The deposit is 325, the rent is 325/month from June 1st but all he has sent is 94.10 on the 20th July.

We were concerned that section 21 requires the deposit to be lodged appropriately but we do not know how to treat this one-off payment.

Should we treat it as contribution towards the deposit and lodge it with DPS or should we take the position no deposit was paid but this was a late partial rent payment.
