I’m a landlord taking tenancy deposits

We’re here to help you find your way around deposit protection

As the home of deposit protection, we’ve got it covered

If you’re a landlord who’s taken a security deposit for a new tenancy, you must protect it with a government-approved deposit protection scheme like ours within 30 days of receiving it.

We’re authorised to protect deposits for tenancies in England and Wales and offer a choice of two types of protection - Custodial protection, a free service where we hold the deposit for the duration of the tenancy, and Insured protection, where you hold the deposit and pay us a fee to protect it.

As the biggest provider of deposit protection in the UK, we’ve been helping landlords for over 10 years, so you can rely on us for all your deposit protection needs.
