Instructions for Your Notice of Tenant Deposit

The notice of tenant deposit form allows a Landlord or a Landlord's agent to fulfil their statutory obligation to notify a Tenant that his or her deposit has been protected within one of the four authorised protection schemes. With the introduction of tenant deposit legislation Landlords are required to not only protect the deposit but to also provide the Tenant all relevant details pertaining to the scheme within 30 days. Failure to do so can lead to harsh financial penalties and also the possibility of not being able to evict or serve notice upon a Tenant. Some schemes may, as a matter of course provide the relevant details to the Tenants. However, by using notice of tenant deposit the Landlord can be content with the fact that their obligations have been fulfilled.

Completing the Notice of Tenant Deposit

The notice of tenant deposit should be completed after the Landlord has chosen and protected the deposit with an appropriate scheme. Once the deposited has been protected and the relevant scheme has been chosen the Landlord should complete the form and sign in the appropriate place. In addition to providing a signed copy of the notice of tenant deposit to the Tenant, the Landlord will also need to print and attach a copy of the chosen scheme's terms and conditions. A link to the relevant scheme has been provided below. Together a copy of the notice of tenant deposit and printed copy of the scheme's terms and conditions should be delivered to the Tenant. It is highly advisable to use registered, signed-for first-class post in order to prove delivery.
