advance rent should now be registered as a deposit in deposit scheme!
"The courts are starting to challenge the advice that was on the communities.gov.website that advance rent is not a deposit.
In view of that members are advised to place advance rent on deposit.
You should also try to protect the deposit with the custodial scheme as until you do then the tenant can sue for 3 times its return"
I asked for clarification on this and that was Dave's response. Seems impossible to comply with to me.
