Understanding your rights

The rights that you have as a tenant can often seem confusing and unclear but we will provide you with coherent and straightforward advice to help minimise your stress and worry.

When you pay a deposit for a rental property you landlord has 30 days to place it in one of three tenancy protection schemes:

  • Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS)
  • Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS)
  • My Deposits

This is a legal requirement designed to prevent landlords using your money as income and to ensure it is readily available to you at the end of your tenancy.

Unfortunately, some landlords ignore their legal obligations, either by not protecting your deposit at all or protecting it too late i.e. after the 30-day deadline.

If your landlord has broken the law you can sue them for a sum that is up to four times your deposit. The figure decided on will be at the judge’s discretion but you may be entitled to more than you think. This is because you can sue your landlord for every instance that they have breached your agreement. Each time you renew your lease, your landlord has another 30 days to protect your deposit. Every time they fail to do so it is considered a different and separate breach, for which you can claim.
