Tenants - Find out more…

Find out more about tenancy deposit protection with our scheme and how it affects you.

From 1 April 2013 your landlord or letting agent must comply with new legislation. If you pass your landlord or letting agent a deposit on a private tenancy agreement then they must protect it with a government approved scheme within 14 days. Key information about the deposit protection must be provided within 28 days.

Your landlord or agent has a choice of how to protect the deposit. Find out more about what happens when it’s protected in a custodial or insurance scheme.
