Comment on: Landlords warned to use secure deposit schemes
Typical, the tenant wins again! I recently had a case where clearly the tenant had damaged the landlords property, the inventory and check out inspection proved that, together with photographic evidence ....yet the tenant was still awarded 2 thirds of their deposit back by an adjudicating officer at the DPS because she felt it was wear and tear......absolutely disgusting, the DPS and the courts need to change their views and consider the landlord for a change, if tenants cause damage these adjudicating officers have no right to rule otherwise, if tenants don't pay their rent, they need evicting, not pitying - for god sake, the councils do their utmost to gatekeep these people forcing them into the private sector so private landlords need as much help and support they can get. Whoever passed these deposit schemes need shooting
