#AskTDS: "The tenant can't give me an address for after the tenancy ends. How do I complete the Prescribed Information?"
This article has been written in response to an Agent's query: “The tenant can't give me an address for after the tenancy ends. How do I complete the Prescribed Information?”
The festive period is now behind us with the remains of the tinsel and the less than bright lights have been confined to a storeroom or garage. Now we have the dark days of the rest of winter ahead, so this week we are looking at a heating system that operates with oil stored in tanks and how TDS approach a case where a party is making a claim against the tenancy deposit for refilling them at tenancy end.
TDS sometimes see enquires from a tenant that relates to a maintenance issue or defect in the property experienced during the tenancy. More specifically the enquiry we see most often is “My boiler stopped working and I had no heating or hot water - can I claim compensation?” this could come in response to a proposed deduction from the tenancy deposit by the landlord or letting agent.
