Council provides Deposit how to protect
I am about to received the whole deposit via my agent from the council. Its for some new tenants will I need to protect it?
Also what would be the position if I do protect it and claim some of the deposit, who would I need to return the remainder to?
I have had this issue before but I do not believe I have dealt with it correctly. Three years on the tenants is still at the flat. In this case I put the whole sum in the tenants name under one of the schemes. Thinking it though when I comes to handing back the deposit I will be giving her money that does not belong to her! In this instance as I have made the mistake at the being its too late to correct.
The 2nd time around I would like to get it right. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
