About the author

Our sister company, my|deposits, is a government-authorised tenancy deposit protection scheme. It is designed to enable landlords and letting agents to take and hold a deposit for the duration of the tenancy.

my|deposits have successfully protected more than a million deposits since 2007 and over 60,000 landlords use them. They are also the preferred choice for many large and small letting agents.

By law, if you take a deposit from your tenant on an AST agreement in England and Wales, you must protect it with a government-authorised tenancy deposit protection scheme.

my|deposits is the only government-authorised scheme designed specifically for landlords who want to keep hold of their tenant’s deposit for the duration of the tenancy, rather than handing it over to a third party for safekeeping.

Over 60,000 landlords already use mydeposits. Join:
  • You hold the deposit in your bank account,
  • You can make deductions to the deposit if you need to,
  • You have the freedom to resolve matters with your tenant directly,
  • We are here to help with any formal disputes.
