The court was asked whether (as the appellant contends) a payment made at the commencement of the tenancy, pursuant to a requirement in the tenancy agreement that ‘The first six months rent are to be paid in advance’, must be treated as a ‘tenancy deposit’ for the purposes of section 212(8) of the Housing Act 2004.
