Don't just take our word for it
As I previously had a letting agent for my property I was really unsure about how to take over management, especially around the deposit. Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) made this a stress free experience for me. Their customer service is excellent, providing friendly and timely advice. No question is too small and it feels like a very personal experience. Thank you TDS!Abby, Landlord
I’ve used the TDS for all my tenancies since protecting deposits with an independent organisation became law. After researching the schemes available, I decided to use the TDS for all my tenancies and have been very happy with the service and professionalism.Carole, Independent Landlord
As well as the peace of mind of having such a professional organisation to act as an intermediary in an end of tenancy dispute, the TDS website provides a wealth of information, case studies and legal precedents to help guide landlords. Keep up the good work.
