Can tenants move in before deposit is received?
Tenancy Deposits

I have found tenants who want to move in very quickly. We are arranging the tenancy agreement and have agreed on payment of deposit. In what form should I take the deposit and first month's rent? Is it ok to let them move in before a cheque clears or a bank transfer is received, or should I keep them out until then? What can I do if the cheque bounces after they've moved in?
