Tenants Deposits

Hugh F Shaw & Co are members of the Tenancy Dispute Scheme (TDS). 

The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) is a government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme in England and Wales operated by The Dispute Service Ltd. The Housing Act 2004 requires landlords and letting agents to protect deposits on assured shorthold tenancies in a scheme such as the TDS or similar. They provide insurance backed tenancy deposit protection with free, impartial dispute resolution for when disagreements arise over how the money should be divided at the end of a tenancy.

From the 1st June 2019 the security deposit (covering damage or defaults on the part of the tenant during the tenancy) will reduce from six weeks rent to five weeks rent. However where the rent exceeds £50,000 per annum the security deposit will remain as six weeks rent.
