Are councils obliged to pay a deposit to Landlords when they place a DSS tenant?
The DSS tenant in my property was moved by Brent council to be settled by Birmingham City Council in Birmingham. The tenancy agreement states no deposit paid. Neither council wants to pay me a deposit. The management company who settled the tenant have closed down. I need a deposit because I will have repairs and issues when the tenant leaves. Is it legal to place a tenant by a council without a deposit?
