Tenants of rented property have the right to live their lives without interference from private landlords, according to the government-approved tenancy deposit protection scheme mydeposits.co.uk.

However, in a guide to students who may be looking to sign tenancy agreements in the coming months as they prepare for university life, the company noted there are landlord rights which dictate that properties can be expected as long as 24 hours' notice is given.

Eddie Hooker, chief executive of mydeposits.co.uk, said that students living in rented property are partly responsible for the maintenance of the house they reside in.

He added that deposits are much more likely to be given back to tenants who have kept their place clean, tidy and undamaged.

Many private landlords in university towns will be looking to take advantage of the potential plethora of tenants arriving in the next few weeks, as students head to new places looking for residences to rent.
