    Deposit protection scheme

    Dear Forum,

    Two weeks ago, I gladly handed back the keys to my letting agency who I rented a property from. The LA owners changed, as the initial owner seemed to be just above useless. He had written to me to explain that the deposit was in a protected scheme, but I have never had any paperwork other than a letter to say my deposit was secured.

    The current LA owners said they would return my deposit, but 2 weeks now seems a long time to wait. I have checked all the schemes, but cant see any sign that my deposit was ever placed into a scheme.

    Any thoughts of wisdom welcome before I write my contact details again for the LA.

    Thanks

    Use this form to check if the deposit is protected:

    If not, use this letter to the LANDLORD to start the process of getting it back:

    It is my personal opinion that claiming the 3x penalty is too risky unless you have legal advice - that doesn't stop you threateneing it though! If the £s aren't forthcoming, make your claim for the deposit itself through www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
