    The case of Gardner v McCusker1 is the latest decision to address the scope of the rules regulating the registration of residential tenancy deposits for assured shorthold tenancies (AST).

    The decision is significant in confirming what steps landlords are required to take to ensure tenancy deposits are properly registered when a tenant remains in occupation of a property after the initial fixed term AST expires.
