Struggling With General Problems in Your Rental Property?

Are you struggling with ongoing, general problems in your rental accommodation? Feel like you have a difficult relationship with your landlord, who isn’t very helpful?

If so, it is very likely that your landlord has failed to secure your tenancy deposit in a government protection scheme!

Landlords are obligated to pay your tenancy deposit into one of these schemes within 30 days of receipt- if they fail to do so, you could be entitled to 2- 3 times the amount you paid!

If you’re not sure if your tenancy deposit has been secured, check in one of the three schemes here.

If you know that they have failed to do so, then fill in our FREE claims questionnaire now and we can take it from there!

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.
