Deposit paid to DPS incorrecty?
I also thought that if I was doing this incorrectly their computer would reject it - given it asks for deposit &tenancy strat dates. It didnt reject it so i thought all was well.
At this weeks RLA in Leeds meeting we were given some guidelines from Bury &Walkers Solicitors which states only depsoits taken after 6/4 are in the scheme and it is not relevant when the tenancy is created.
I called the DPS and a girl that sounded 15 answered the phone. SHe didnt have a clue and had to ask a supervisor.They say that the deposit was correctly paid in because the tenancy start date was after the 6th.
I emailed 3 days ago to get further advice but have got no answer.
My other question is, if there is a dispute can another deposit be taken and handed over?.
