Are you living in rented accommodation, or have you rented in the last 6 years? If so, you may be owed thousands of pounds by your landlord!

Landlords have an obligation to protect tenancy deposits within just 30 days of receiving them – if they don’t, you could receive up to 3 x the amount you paid!

If you’re not sure you received confirmation from your landlord that this was done, you can check if your deposit was protected by checking with one of the three government schemes here.

If it hasn’t been protected, we can take care of the whole process for you.  If you have any questions, please view our FAQ’s here.

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 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.
