• Not related to waste as in refuse.
  • This is about damage.
  • Should the tenant damage the furnishings he is said to have “committed waste” to the furniture.  Somewhat archaic, but still in use.  E.g. Case 3 of Schedule 15 of The Rent Act 1977 committing waste is a mandatory ground for a possession order at court (unless the damage is repaired or paid for prior to the court hearing).

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
