Here at Deposit Recovery Claims, we are dedicated to helping tenants to claim back their housing deposits if they were not correctly placed into a tenancy deposit scheme, within the specified 30 days.

Remember, our review of your claim questionnaire is completely FREE.

If your claim with us is successful, you will likely be eligible to receive between 1-3 times the amount of the deposit you originally paid!

The Law

Landlords have an obligation to pay deposits received from Tenants into a deposit protection scheme.

The law states that every Landlord who takes a deposit from a Tenant has to protect that deposit by lodging it with one of 3 tenancy deposit protection schemes.

The basis for this requirement is to stop Landlords utilising a Tenants deposit monies as income elsewhere and to make it easier to obtain the return of your deposit when a Tenancy comes to an end.

The three schemes are:

The Claim

If a Landlord fails to lodge the deposit with one of the 3 tenancy protection schemes within 30 days of the date on which the deposit was provided by the Tenant the Landlord will be subject to a penalty.

The penalty is likely to be between 1-3 times the amount of deposit paid.

Landlords continue to ignore the law in this regard and to assist Tenants (we do not act for Landlords) we have a team of experienced lawyers operating on cases around the UK enforcing Tenants rights against Landlords and obtaining compensation on behalf of Tenants from Landlords who have failed to comply with their obligations.

Hey Paul. Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work, it certainly paid off! I'm treating myself to new flooring in the house. Never dreamed I would get any money back but whoo hoooo I did. You were great, always helped and kept me informed. I would definitely recommend you. Thanks again, take care.
