Inverness landlords provided free tenancy deposits and disputes training

By |Published On: 23rd September 2019|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

Free training in regards to tenancy deposits and disputes will be provided tomorrow for landlords within the area of Inverness in Scotland.

With a new study revealing that 50 disputes have arisen between landlords and tenants over the last 12 months in the area of Inverness, SafeDeposits Scotland has come up with a new way to help. By offering local landlords the option to undergo free training for managing tenancy deposits and disputes, the deposit protection provider hopes to make a difference.

This study also reveals the average amount tenants and landlords tend to disagree over, when it comes to deductions at the end of a tenancy, which totals £406.15.

The main reason for such deductions, causing tenancy deposit disputes, is cleaning. This accounted for 52% of all the cases reported within the IV postcode area.

The deposit protection provider believes that its free workshop should help to demonstrate the best way to present evidence in the event of a dispute with a tenant.

The workshop, which will be aimed at those who have not received any previous training on adjudications, will be held at Jurys Inn on Millburn Road on 24th September from 1pm to 4pm.

Paula Guthrie, adjudication account manager at SafeDeposits Scotland, has commented: “As well as protecting tenancy deposits, SafeDeposits is committed to providing guidance and raising standards in the private rented sector. These courses will help landlords and agents around Inverness better understand the principles of adjudication and in turn help them to protect their investments.

“Some landlords and letting agents make errors at the beginning of tenancies which can cause problems at the end of the lease agreement. The private rented sector is always evolving, so these courses are a great way to keep up to date with best practice and new legislation.”
