Riley Marshall is a registered member of a Government regulated Tenancy Deposit Scheme. This means we are able to protect tenant’s deposits to keep them safe throughout the tenancy.
Landlords must protect the tenants’ dilapidation deposit at the start of the tenancy to comply with the law. Failure to do so can result in fines and complications in serving notice on the tenant if you want them to leave.
The purpose of the legal regulations is to ensure good practice in returning deposits at the end of the tenancy and making fair deductions. It also means that when landlords need to claim against a tenant’s deposit there is a mechanism in place to reduce disputes.
To make it easier to enforce any claim for loss or damage at the end of the tenancy we highly recommend that you have a professional Inventory and Statement of Condition prepared and checked at the start and end of each new tenancy.
Within 30 days of receiving a tenant’s deposit, the landlord must tell the tenant:
