Landmark Ruling Spells Lookout For Dorset Landlords
8:16am 25th January 2013
Landlords across Dorset are being urged to take extra care when registering tenant's deposits following a landmark legal ruling.
Battens Solicitors say ignoring the fine print of the "prescribed information" handed to tenants within 30 days of the receipt of a deposit could leave you out of pocket.
In a recent appeal hearing one landlord has had to pay £3,800 because not all the necessary details were given to the tenant.
