TENANCY DEPOSIT PROTECTION
Deposit protection schemes
We provide tenancy deposit protection schemes across the UK where landlords/letting agents are required to register their tenancy deposits with us. In some cases they can register for a fee in our insurance backed schemes [TDS Insured and TDS Northern Ireland] or in our custodial schemes [TDS Custodial, TDS Northern Ireland, SafeDeposits Scotland].
When a deposit is protected it means that the tenant’s deposit is now secure and allows the tenant or landlord to raise a dispute with us if the are unable to agree about how the deposit should be repaid.
Across the UK we protect c1,650,000 deposits worth £1.9bn
