Is an AST effective if the deposit has not been paid in full?Make Text Bigger
I allowed a DSS couple have access to an empty 2 bed mid terraced property on the basis that their DSS application would be successful and all monies concluded within four working days.
Today fourteen working days have passed and deposit monies have not been collected in full £250 of £595 due. No rental money has been received. I continue to receive explanations that the delays are due to waiting for receipt of allowances from the DSS.
I have explained that the AST has not become effective and that they should leave the property soon.
Is this correct or am I subject to all rules of the Housing Act.
Thank you for your inputs
