I just want to check one thing which seems fairly unambiguous from what i've read but my landlord does not agree.
I rent a room in a shared house under an Assured Short Hold Tenancy Agreement. My landlord does not live in the property (although his address on the agreement is the same as mine) and all of the rooms have at one point been occupied by paying tenants. My agent can verify this if required. I have exclusive use of my own room and share the bathroom and kitchen.
Should my deposit be protected in one of the three scheme?
If my deposit should be protected, must it be registered under my name and at my address?
