Rent Deposit Claims 

Our solicitors can help you bring a claim against your landlord for1 to 3 times the amount of your tenancy deposit if your landlord:

  • doesn’t protect your tenancy deposit in a tenancy deposit protection scheme
  • doesn’t give you certain information about the scheme being used
  • takes too long to protect your deposit, or give you prescribed information

Your landlord must put your deposit in a government-backed tenancy deposit scheme (TDP) if you rent your home on an assured shorthold tenancy that started after 6 April 2007. In England and Wales your deposit can be registered with:

The schemes are designed to make sure you get your deposit back if you:

  • Meet the terms of your tenancy agreement
  • Don’t damage the property
  • Pay your rent and bills
