Tenancies Deposit Scheme

What is a Tenancy Deposit ?

A tenancy deposit is a sum of money which a landlord requires a tenant to pay at the start of the tenancy or which the landlord holds over from a previous tenancy with the same tenant. The money is security, in case the tenant does not meet their obligations in connection with the tenancy.

What is Tenancy Deposit Protection?

Deposits on assured shorthold tenancies (ASTs) must be protected with a government approved scheme.
The landlord or agent must protect the deposit and issue prescribed information to the tenant within 30 days of receiving the deposit.
Tenancy deposit protection is a requirement of the Housing Act 2004.

What is Prescribed Information?

The landlord or agent must provide the tenant(s) and any one who paid the deposits on behalf of the tenant (classed as ‘relevant persons’) with specific details of the deposit protection and a leaflet explaining how TDS works. This is called prescribed information. It must be issued within 30 days of receiving the deposit.
