Hi,

 

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?

 

Thanks

Jamie

Hi Guys,

 

I have spoken to both Shelter and The Citizens Advice Bureau and neither can give me the specific answer to the questions of my original post. Could you point me in the direction of some similar cases so that I can see what some Judges have ruled on this issue?

 

Thanks

Jamie

Yes your deposit should be protected, as you have an AST. This is referred to under the Housing Act 2004, Section 214, and the sections surrounding it.

In order to check this, you should be able to contact each of the three govt approved schemes (mydeposits, TDS, and the DPS) and verify which one of them it is secured with.

To show you are a proper AST tenant rather than a lodger with resident LL you may need to show current LL domicile (home) address is different to yours eg C Tax or electoral register.
