I am fully aware that tenants that are under an AST have to have there deposit protected in a deposit protection scheme, but does the same procedure apply to lodgers living in rented accommodation?
In HMOS does the deposit need to be protected regardless of if he is a live in or live out landlord?
Lodgers usually want there deposit back the date they move out which would not be possible to do if there deposit was with the DPS as it can take up to 14 days to retrieve and refund it from them.
Any advice would be helpful.
