Hi all,

I am due to move out of my property after the 12 month contract on July 31st, however 4 of the 6 tenants are keeping the tennancy on for an extra month , as the house has not been rented out for the next year yet.

However the landlord is saying i have to wait til after they move out now until i get my deposit back, which i need that money in order to pay for my next property! and if the tenants keep extending their stay will i ever get my deposit back?

what do i do?

Your landlord is wrong. When you have a joint tenancy, the first tenant that moves ends the tenancy for all other tenants. The landlord and the other tenants are free to sign their own agreement, but you have to receive your deposit.

If you have a AST and you are the only tenant on it, then the other tenants take no part in your deposit whatsoever. 

Do you know if your deposit is protected ? If not you may be eligible for compensation, as well as your deposit.
