Since April 2007, all landlords who take a deposit from their tenant on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) in England and Wales* must comply with the tenancy deposit protection legislation.

This means you must:

  1. Protect the tenant's deposit with a government approved scheme within 30 calendar days of receiving it from the tenant
  2. Provide the tenant with the prescribed information within the same 30-day deadline

Choose the scheme to suit you

mydeposits provides landlords with a choice of deposit protection options:

mydeposits insurance

  • You hold the tenant’s deposit in your account during the tenancy
  • NRLA members receive 30% off the deposit protection fee

mydeposits custodial

  • mydeposits holds the tenant’s deposit for the duration of the tenancy
  • Free to join and use

Why choose mydeposits?

  • You have complete control on how you choose to protect the deposit for the duration of the tenancy with our insurance and custodial schemes

*There are different deposit protection laws for landlords in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Jersey.

Really good system, very easy to use. In the past the team have been very helpful and accommodating when I made an error and they willingly helped me out. Would highly recommend.

Paul, Landlord

I have used mydeposits for years and it is simple, reasonably priced and easy to use. The new information they send has also been helpful. I have a number of properties and will continue using it.

Richard, Landlord

I have used this company for many years now to protect the deposits I take on my rental properties. The service is very easy to use, I like the diary reminder one month before expiry. The certificate is very user friendly for the tenants with all the information in a simple format for both landlord and tenant. Fully recommend.
