Notice to tenant(s) of deposit protection scheme

Use this document to meet your legal requirements after taking a deposit from a tenant. It tells tenants which deposit protection scheme is used and, together with the scheme documents that must be provided with this notice, gives them the 'prescribed information' required by law.

Protect the deposit and give this notice and the scheme documents to the tenant within 30 days of the tenant paying the deposit. At the same time, you should also send it (together with the scheme documents) to anyone who paid the deposit for the tenant and, in order to avoid any dispute, the tenant's guarantors (if any). This document is suitable for tenancies in England & Wales.

Landlord and Tenant law is complicated and contains many requirements which, if not followed to the letter, could invalidate the document you are seeking to serve and prejudice your ability to recover possession. We therefore recommend that you seek legal advice if there is anything with which you are unclear. This advice can be obtained from Slater & Gordon Solicitors, who will be happy to provide you with a quote for their costs before any work is undertaken.
