Taking over a Tenancy

I am buying a property that is split into 2 flats, both with AST tenants. One of the tenancies commenced 04/03/06 (pre deposit legislation) and the other 21/04/07 (post deposit legislation). The current Landlord did not lodge the deposit for the recent tenancy with a recognised scheme due to the imminent sale.

My questions are:
-Should I provide new tenancy agreements (&lodge the deposits) and what are the positives and negatives of this?
-Will the fact that the previous landlord did not lodge the deposit affect my legal position?
