Tenancy deposit schemes

The landlord deposit scheme is a government-backed tenancy deposit protection scheme introduced for landlords. As a landlord, you must place your deposit with a government-backed tenancy deposit protection (TDP) when renting property on an assured shorthold tenancy (AST) that started after 6th April 2007. Be mindful there are separate (TDP) schemes in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The very reason the tenancy deposit protection scheme was established was to facilitate the return of deposit in a professional and timely manner. As a landlord, you must return any deposits within 10 days of both parties agreeing how much needs to be paid back. If there is a dispute between a landlord and a tenant, then the deposit will be protected in the scheme until the issue is sorted out.
