Landlords: deposit protection schemes


You should get advice from the deposit scheme provider if there’s a dispute over how much deposit you should give back to your tenant.

You’ll need to give the deposit to the scheme if:

  • there’s a dispute over the deposit with your tenant
  • you’re in an insured scheme

The scheme will look after it until the dispute is resolved.
