Tenancy deposit protection certificate
Not all tenancy deposit schemes automatically provide tenants with all the necessary information to comply with regulation 2 of SI 2007/797. Notably, the DPS scheme leaves it to the landlord to supply a substantial amount of this information, and most particularly the information required by reg. 2(g). This is a potential minefield for landlords who have properly registered their deposits and may believe that they are fully compliant with TDP. Many of these landlords have failed to provide appropriate prescribed information to the tenant and they will therefore find themselves in violation of the law in relation to TDP, and subject to the penalties set out below.
This form will fill in the gaps left by the DPS scheme and thereby satisfy the requirements of reg. 2.
