For the purposes of deposit protection what exactly is meant by the term ‘replacement tenancy’ ?
This page from the DPS talks exactly about what you’re asking – https://www.depositprotection.com/documents/newsletter-5.html
In short, a replacement tenancy is any new tenancy that replaces the old one, where the landlord, the tenant and the property are the same as the original tenancy.
This means, a new fixed term, an updated new fixed term with changes to the agreement (rent increase), a new agreement agreed during the fixed term, etc.
