Tenancy deposit protection scheme

If you rent your home on an assured shorthold tenancy that started after 6 April 2007, your landlord must put your deposit in one of the following tenancy deposit protection schemes:

These government-backed schemes guarantee you’ll get your deposit back if you:

  • meet the terms of your tenancy agreement
  • don’t damage the property
  • pay your rent and bills.

The Council's deposit guarantee scheme, where we cover a deposit through a bond, will not be affected by the tenancy deposit protection scheme because no money passes to the landlord.
