What is Tenancy Deposit Protection? Your questions answered...

The Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme commenced in April 2007. The idea of the scheme is that:

  • when tenants are entitled to it, they get all or part of their deposit back;
  • any disputes between tenants and landlords or agents will be easier to resolve; and
  • tenants are encouraged to look after the property they are renting.

Tenants should ask their landlord about the details of the scheme when signing a new tenancy agreement.
