Deposits from Prospective Tenants
The only deposits that can be taken from prospective tenants before a tenancy agreement commences are a holding deposit or key deposit. There are rules around holding deposits that must be followed. For more information about holding deposits, see the Rent payments and holding deposits fact sheet.
