    Anyone got any experience of using the Tenancy Deposit Scheme for Regulated Agents Dispute Service, and in particular their attitude to unsigned inventories, receipts/invoices and the lack thereof, and other pieces of not-so-great book keeping?

    Do they tend to fall on the side of the tenant or the landlord? How do they compare with the courts?

    Bookmark this is the TDSRA website where you can obtain all the info.

    They are a completely neutral body and membership will become compulsory next year for any landlord or agent who wants to hold the tenant's deposit in a clients account; at the moment it's voluntary - and the cost is about £380 per branch office/site.

    If you're really interested there is a Lettings Forum jointly hosted by ARLA/NAEA on 23 June in Coventry and is open to everybody but you do have to pay; having said that it's excellent value! Lawrence Greenberg, Director of TDSRA will be giving an update on what the requirements will be and when they are likely to take effect.
    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.
