We protect deposits for tenancies in England and Wales. For properties in other jurisdictions, please refer to local statutes for guidance on tenancy deposit protection requirements and authorised providers.
Choose the scheme that suits you best
Here at The DPS, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. We offer both Custodial and Insured schemes so you can choose the type of protection which suits you best.
Our Custodial scheme is free of charge and really simple to use. We hold your tenant’s deposit throughout the period of the tenancy, repaying it when they leave the property.
Our Insured scheme is a little different – you retain the tenant’s deposit for the period of the tenancy and pay us a small fee to protect it. You manage the deposit repayment when your tenant leaves the property.
