What About The Bond Guarantee Rent Deposit?
The bond guarantee is an agreement between the Council and the Landlord that covers damages above normal wear and tear at the property by the tenant.
The Landlord must provide a tenancy agreement or in the case of living in a property where the Landlord is resident, the Landlord should provide a covering letter confirming details of your agreement.
You will be required to pay back to the Council any monetary claim the Landlord makes against the bond guarantee.
The same applies in the exceptional cases of where a cash rent deposit is paid and monies are withheld by the Landlord.
