Did you protect your tenant’s deposit?
Section 213 of the Housing Act (2004) requires any money taken from a tenant as a security deposit be protected in a Government-approved scheme within 30 days’ of receiving it.
Did your agent fail to protect your tenant’s deposit?
A person acting on behalf of a landlord, such as a letting agent, can be liable under Section 214(4) for any breach of Section 213, but only where the agent was responsible for complying with such provisions. If you have discovered that your agent has failed to protect your tenant’s deposit, you will need to provide evidence that it was your agent’s responsibility to do so.
