Hi Brain,

I was on the phone to you earlier and you advised me about the recent Superstrike Ltd v Marino Rodrigues case.

I spoke to the DPS where my deposits are protected and the person on the phone advised that they are still considering the implications but that from their point of view all i need to do is reissue the prescribed information to the tenant and i do not have to resubmit the deposit with them.

Do you think this is the correct advise? or would it pose a problem when issuing a section 21?

On another note from my recent experience it seems to me that taking a deposit causes more hassle than it is worth and in the long term it is not worth taking a deposit of 1 months rent (which is the maximum i can get with the type of tenant i have) as with all these implications I am likely to lose more than that due to the time it will take to get a possession order. I assume that not taking any deposit would solve all these issues??
