New rules to protect deposits paid by private tenants in England and Wales have come into force. All landlords and letting agents will have to sign up to the Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme and disputes will be handled by a free resolution service. They aim to prevent landlords unfairly holding back all or part of a deposit when tenants leave their property.
Under the Housing Act 2004 in UK all new deposits need to be secured with one of three schemes. The first scheme holds the deposits directly, returning the interest to the tenant when they leave. The other two schemes will provide insurance cover if a landlord defaults. These will cost landlords and tenants a fee, but will allow them to keep the interest earned.
