CFPwinMan will calculate the Maximum Permitted Deposit allowed under the Tenant Fees Act 2019.

This is calculated as 5 weeks rent for tenancies under £50,000 rent per annum, or 6 weeks rent for tenancies equal or above £50,000 rent per annum.

If you are operating version, in User Defaults, you can turn off the deposit warning message, as covered below.
