Shelter do it again!

Yeah ive had the same issue, I always ask for one months rent plus £100 for the deposit. I dont like to ask for just a months rent as lots of tenants seem to assume this is the last months rent and so many try to say at the end of the tenancy "Well you have my deposit which is a months rent so you can keep that and I wont pay the last month". This obviously leaves nothing for any damages.

This is all fine but for a pet I have usually asked for £100 extra per pet, add this on and it takes it over the 5 weeks deposit limit so I am having to ask for additional rent for pets instead. I guess you could argue it as a win as its less money a tenant has to find at the start of the tenancy but as my tenants usually stay on average 3-4 years+ in the long run it will cost them a lot more.....

I like your thinking, showing these idiots that it can easily and legally avoided I think is the best way to shut down this type of policy thinking.

The unforeseen side affect with all these people rushing to accountants and solicitors is actually they will take advantage of using limited companies etc to save on tax.. Because of Section 24 and the move to a limited company structure for my last purchase I have actually saved a couple of thousand pounds in tax, I would never have bothered with a limited company and would not have saved that tax if S24 had not come into force....
