Be prepared - avoid a slip up!

Tags: , , , , , , ,

In an exciting busy property letting market, the rewards for successful letting agents are plain to see, hopefully happy customers full of praise and reviews aplenty on social media. The downside though is evident to any property manager and their team, it can all unravel after the tenancy has ended and the negotiations about the return of the tenancy deposit can take so much time and leave all the parties involved seething; check those internet reviews now. 

The TDS Academy won’t necessarily improve customer feedback but it can give you the knowledge and the skills to ensure you are ready for a tenancy deposit dispute that may come to the TDS team for a report of adjudication.

‘Be prepared before you take the property on’ is a mantra designed to remind all property management professionals that you need to start early when it comes to being prepared. The course content includes details about what we need when there is a possible dispute; how to collect and collate the right information and manage the evidence to present to the adjudicator, and also be confident and assured of the TDS procedure.

The TDS Academy content is detailed and includes:

  • Understand Tenancy Deposit Legislation; including the Deregulation Act 2015, Localism Act 2011 and the Court process
  • How to correctly register tenancy deposits; including relevant persons, serving of documents and Section 21
  • Ensure you are producing good documents; inventories, photos and invoices
  • Gain knowledge about Dispute Resolution; manage expectations, what is evidence, outcomes

Avoid those banana skins and get really useful information so you get it right, come to our next TDS Academy and benefit from six hours of certificated CPD, lunch and really useful knowledge.

No bananas were hurt in the writing of this blog!!
