    Yes, I'm quite aware of that! Why would £10 paid into a landlord's account by a tenant be considered to be a deposit under the DPS rules?
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      If a TA mentioned a deposit but the deposit was not paid (e.g. it was a agreed it would be paid at a later date), how would the Landlord go about protecting them-self?

      Would it be prudent to for the LL to stump up the money them-self and protect it?

        It's incredibly wrong.
        The advice given to you by the NLA was wrong. See posts #8 and #14.

          Just issue a new S21 after the deposit is protected.

            You said "Most people know this".
            Most people do not know this, as the information is incorrect.

            That could stay a possession order to time infinity.
            Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong
