Are you a landlord? Do you take deposits?
If so, you may one day be faced with a dispute over deductions from the deposit.
- The property might have been left in a disgusting condition
- There could be damaged furniture
- Items could have gone missing
- The property could have been re-decorated. Badly. And in breach of the terms of the agreement
All of these will cost YOU money! But hey! There’s a deposit. No problem!
Until the adjudicator awards most of the deposit money to the tenant.
What you need to do to win adjudications
- You need to have the proper paperwork
- You need to understand how adjudications work
- You need to submit the correct paperwork to prove your case
Most landlords, not being lawyers, don’t understand properly how to prepare for what is, effectively, a legal trial.
This is where Tom Derrett’s new book How to Win Deposit Disputes can help you.
- Tom IS a lawyer
- He is a former tenancy deposit adjudicator
- He writes in a clear and easy to understand style
Having this book on your shelf will give you the guidance you need to help prepare your case for adjudication thoroughly and professionally.
You will find out how to get the best result possible, so your tenants will no longer be able to ‘get away with it’.
Indeed the guidance in this book may help avoid disputes altogether. If you can show your tenants that you have the ammunition to defeat them at adjudication, they will be more likely to be reasonable about things.
Book launch date and special offer
The book is due to come out tomorrow, 20th March. We are celebrating its launch with a short ‘offer’ :
The book will cost £12 but for three days this will include
- A voucher giving 25% off the cost of Toms professional service
- An excel ‘betterment calcuator’, and
- Tom’s guide to avoiding disputes (in case you have not got it already)

To take advantage of these special offers you need to buy quickly.
They will be taken down on Thursday 22 March at 10.30 pm, and if you don’t get them before then you will have lost your chance. (Tom was initially only willing to make his offer available for two days, but I persuaded him to extend it to three).
