We believe in choice for our customers

When mydeposits was founded in 2007, we wanted to give landlords, agents and tenants an alternative to the other two schemes. Now, over a decade later, we’re still giving you a choice by offering all two types of deposit protection, insured and custodial.

Who are we?

We’re part of the HFIS Group

HFIS is a group of specialist insurance and regulatory brands for the private rented sector. From referencing and deposits (or alternatives), all the way through to possessions, our brands cover the entire life cycle of a tenancy.
mydeposits was created by HFIS and the National Landlords Association (NLA), but we’re now solely owned by HFIS.

HFIS is part of Brown & Brown, Inc. one of the world’s largest insurance broking businesses.

Brown & Brown supports our business by providing access to strong insurance partnerships, enhanced insurance products, risk management resources, and the expertise of over 14000 insurance professionals worldwide. To find out more, visit www.bbrown.com/eu
