Landlords have an obligation to pay deposits received from tenants into a deposit protection scheme – that’s the law.


Every landlord/letting agent who takes a deposit from a tenant must protect that deposit by lodging it with one of the three tenancy deposit schemes – that’s what the law says.  This protection is intended to prevent Landlords using monies as income.  The schemes also make it easier to obtain your deposit at the end of your shorthold tenancy.


If you can answer yes to the following questions you maybe entitled to compensation 1 to 3 times the amount of the deposit paid!

  1. Are you renting a property?
  2. Have you rented a property within the last 6 years?
  3. Did you or someone else on your behalf pay a deposit to the landlord or letting agent?


Our friendly Tenancy Deposit Team can help clients enforce Tenants rights against landlords and obtain rightful compensation from landlords who have failed to comply with their obligations.


Our easy to follow infographic [below] will guide you through the correct process your landlord should have followed after receiving payment of the shorthold tenancy deposit.
