    TDS deposit - landlord not returning after 1 month

    Hi

    A friend (honest) has vacated their property a month ago. The landlord has checked the property but has not submitted any claim for the deposit. The check out procedure confirmed there were no problems, although some minor issues have since been raised.

    Am I right in thinking that if the landlord fails to return the deposit or make any submission within 10 days of the end of the tenancy then the tenant can take the matter to court and claim 3 x the deposit?

    If this is true, can anyone provide a web link

    Thanks!!

    The tenant may claim 3x the deposit if the deposit is not protected. But your thread title indicates the deposit is protected with the TDS (i.e. http://thedisputeservice.co.uk/ ) If so, your friend should contact the scheme regarding the landlord's failure to return the deposit.
