What is a Tenancy Deposit Claim?
If your landlord does not protect your deposit with one of the 3 government approved tenancy deposit schemes within 30 days of receiving the deposit from you, then you could claim between 1 and 3 times the value of your deposit.
Your landlord must also provide you with the ‘prescribed information’ regarding the deposit protection which includes a copy of the deposit protection certificate.
Unfortunately, not all landlords take their tenancy deposit obligations seriously and often fail to comply with the tenancy deposit protection rules. This could be by not providing you with the prescribed information, protecting your deposit too late or even not protecting it at all. If you fall into any of these categories, then you may be entitled to claim compensation.
