Tenancy Deposit Protection Service

The Agent is member of a Tenancy Deposit protection scheme which provides an independent and impartial method of resolving any differences between Landlords and Tenants at the end of a Tenancy. At the end of a Tenancy the Landlord and Tenant should attempt to agree the basis for repayment of the Deposit. If there is a dispute the service provides for the case to be dealt with by an independent case examiner. The examiner is an impartial qualified expert who will make a decision and therefore avoid the need for potentially protracted court action.
