Renting my first property, I didn’t know about the deposit protection schemes, however, the information and guidance from mydeposits was really helpful throughout my tenancy.
By speaking to my landlord and reading the information from mydeposits, I have a good understanding of how everything works and will suggest the scheme to any future landlords.
What happens to my deposit?
You hand over your deposit to your landlord or agent as usual
By law they must protect it with a scheme within 30 days
You should also receive confirmation of the protection from your landlord/agent
At the end of the tenancy the deposit is returned to you less any agreed deductions
