I have rented my property for the last 6 months and I was not aware of the requirements for deposit protection. Obviously, my fault for not checking properly on the requirements or attaining the proper advice.
Anyway, I have agreed a short term tenancy of 6 months with the tenant and as such wanted opinions on the best approach to take.
Should I re-issue the AST now the initial 6 months is up and protect the deposit under the deposit protection scheme? And if I did, would that protect me for a section 21?
I am under good terms with the tenant so I could agree to return their deposit in full and have it reissued such that there is a 'receipt' of deposit?
Obviously this is my error, but want to get this rectified and above board asap.
Thanks in advance.
