    Tenancy Deposit Scheme

    I have agreed distribution of deposit with tenant and submitted same to Deposit Scheme. To date, tenant has not responded to Deposit Scheme to formally agree. What is my next step?

    Speak to tenant.
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      I have been messaging tenant but she just replies that she is overwhelmed with move, etc and doesn't respond to dps. I just don't know what next step is if she continues not to bother to act. We have agreed on amount to come to me (landlord) and what amount will be refund to her. (Tenant) by message. She no longer lives locally so I can't visit her in person to discuss.

        Just leave it, its not up to you to chase the tenant. You have agreed a deduction which as been applied the rest of the deposit has been returned so its up to the tenant now, why are you chasing the T?

        Was this a custodial or insured deposit protection?
        Any advice I give is my opinion and experience, I am as you also learning.

            Ok so the TDS has time limits right? Assuming this is a custodial protection the LL has applied to the TDS for a portion of the deposit to be paid to them. I would have thought the TDS will write to each party notifying them of this and set time limits to respond and if any party fails to respond the TDS distributes the deposit??

              Custodial with DPS. We agreed beforehand and I contacted DPS but tenant has not contacted them. That is why I am chasing her. No funds will be distributed until she agrees.

                I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

                We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

                My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

                What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

                Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

                I humbly note...

                The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

                The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

                I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

                In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

                IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
