How much is my deposit and what happens to it?
A tenancy deposit offers the landlord peace of mind, that when the tenancy ends you will leave the property in good condition and you will have acted in line with the tenancy conditions. It is usually equivalent to six weeks
At KFH we protect tenant deposits for Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST) with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS), which is run by The Dispute Service Ltd. This is one of the Government approved schemes and you can find more details on www.tds.gb.com.However, sometimes a landlord will wish to take responsibility for protecting your deposit with this scheme or one of the others.
