To learn more about rental deposit protection, please contact: www.communities.gov.uk/index.asp?id=1152035 The landlord can deduct from the deposit if the rental agreement ends and the tenant owes money to the lessor for either unpaid rent or damage to the premises. The owner cannot withdraw for proper use on the site (i.e. wear and tear generated only by the dwelling on the premises). The owner can shoot for stains on the carpet or boards, large holes in the wall and missing appliances and other things that are beyond proper wear. The lessor`s obligations are defined by the conditions contained in the rental agreement and by the laws applicable to the location of the land. The main obligation of the landlord is to allow the tenant to use the property for peaceful purposes.
