DepositGuard

If you have a tenancy that started after April 2007 and you take a tenancy deposit, under the provisions of the UK Housing Act 2004, the landlord must protect the deposit, using a government-approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme and serve all the required documentation within 30 days of receiving the deposit.

We offer two schemes that you can use to protect your tenants' deposits, Insured and Custodial. Both of our schemes are brought to you in partnership with TDS.

What is Insured / Custodial?

John King, Head of Member Services, talks you through the differences between DepositGuard's deposit protection offerings.

Allowing you to make the right choice for you and your business.
