Tenancy Deposit Scheme award short of costs?

Much more effective is DO NOT take a damage deposit. Alternative strategy is to ensure you have a home owning guarantor at the start of the tenancy. Send them an invoice for damages/cleaning etc asking them to pay the bill within 7 days. If they refuse point out you are taking them the county court where, if successful they will have to pay and also receive a ccj. I have not taken a damage deposit since my first and only dispute. I have threatened tenants with small claims court twice.... Read More

I never said they should support private landlords. however I did point out to them that they have lost the custom of a landlord who has shopped with them for over 40 years. I also pointed out to them that I would encourage all private landlords who shop at M&S to think again via personal contacts and forums. I also pointed out to them that there are estimated to be 2 million landlords.... Read More

Sent an email to M&S telling them as a longstanding customer I would no longer be shopping at M&S until they stop supporting the "amazing charity" Shelter. This is their reply

Good afternoon David

Thanks for getting in touch - I'm sorry you're disappointed in our decision to support Shelter.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through their advice, support and legal services. We've supported Shelter in the past and are again this year, with 5% of Sales (not Profit) on selected items, going to the charity. Last year we raised over £600,000 for Shelter through our support and we do plan on increasing this figure this year.

I am sorry to hear that you're disappointed by this and I've reported your feedback to our charity management team, under the reference above. I can't promise that anything will change as we don't currently have any plans to not support the charity, but our teams will certainly consider everything going forward.

Thanks again for getting in touch about this David, have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,
