Prescribed information relating to tenancy deposits
Tenancy Deposits

I issued my current tenants with the "Prescribed Information relating to Tenancy Deposits" when we agreed their Assured Short hold Tenancy Agreement last May (May 2008). I placed their deposit with the Deposit Protection Service at that time.

These tenants have decided to rent my property for a further year and have recently signed a new Assured Short hold Tenancy Agreement for this further year's tenancy agreement, commencing May 2009.

As regards their current tenancy I do not intend to withhold any part of their current deposit and have planned to just let it roll over for a further year in the same Deposit Protection Service account.

Given these circumstances, do I need to get them to sign a new "Prescribed Information relating to Tenancy Deposits", or is last year's prescribed information still effective?

(I suspect that I need to get them to sign a new "Prescribed Information relating to Tenancy Deposits" to ensure that they receive the latest terms and conditions of the Deposit Protection Service, which would therefore reflect any changes since last year, but I'd rather not do this if there is no need.)
