When you decide to leave your rental property the question arises: will you get back your rental deposit? Do not worry it is not just you having a question, the landlord could be worried too if the tenant will leave a mess or any damages to the property. That is why if you are assured shorthold tenant, your landlord will put your deposit in a tenancy deposit scheme (TDP). That TDP scheme ensure you will have your deposit return. Of course all of this will happen if you follow a few terms. According to https://www.gov.uk/tenancy-deposit-protection/overview website you will get your deposit back if you:
- Meet the terms of your tenancy agreement;
- Don’t damage the property;
- Pay your rent and bills.
Again pursuant to the same website “your landlord or letting agent must put your deposit in the scheme within 30 days of getting it”. What is happening if there is a dispute over a deposit? “Your tenancy deposit protection (TDP) scheme offers a free dispute resolution service if you disagree with your landlord about how much deposit should be returned. You don’t have to use the service but if you do, both you and the landlord have to agree to it. You’ll both be asked to provide evidence, and the decision made about your deposit will be final.” – says https://www.gov.uk/tenancy-deposit-protection/disputes-and-problems .
