Landlords must provide tenants with a free tenancy information notice within 28 days of a private tenancy starting. If a tenant pays for rent or any other payment relating to their tenancy in cash the landlord must provide them with a receipt. Tenants cannot be asked to pay a deposit of more than one month’s rent. Landlords now have up to 28 days to protect a tenancy deposit and up to 35 days to pass the required information to the tenant.
