Hello from The Deposit Protection Service and welcome to the latest edition of Open House!

This month, we remind you of the impact of the recent Deregulation Act and the need to act now if it affects you. We also tell you about our success at the prestigious ESTAS awards, and of course there’s our latest "Be the adjudicator" (gardening themed in time for summer). Finally, we're showing our support for the forthcoming SAFEagent Awareness Week.      




We've won! Thank you for your support 

We're delighted we were awarded Supplier of the Year Best in Tenancy Deposit Protection Sector at the prestigious annual ESTAS awards.

What makes this award so special is that it’s voted for by you, our customers. We'd like to thank you for taking the time to vote and for your continued support.

We had many great comments through voting. Lots of you left us fantastic feedback such as "this is an excellent service I wouldn't be without it. It offers confidence and assurance to landlords and tenants."

If you'd like to know more about the awards and see what else you had to say, take a look at our blog.

The Deregulation Act - 30 days to protect your tenants' deposits!

You only have until the 23 June 2015 to protect any deposit taken before 6 April 2007 in a tenancy deposit protection scheme.

We want to help you act in time and avoid facing a potential fine, so for more information about the act and how it might affect you, check out our blog.

We support SAFEagent Awareness Week!

We're committed to protecting tenants' deposits, which is why we're proudly supporting SAFEAgent Awareness Week from 1 to 5 June 2015.

Being a SAFEagent member means you're recognised as a company that protects landlords' and tenants' money through client money protection schemes. 

We want to encourage all letting agents to become members of SAFEagent and show your support for client money protection. 

Over on our blog we talk about why SAFEagent is important in the private rental sector. 

Find out why we support SAFEagent!






Gardener's question time 

It's our latest interactive "Be the adjudicator" case study. The condition of the garden is often a contentious issue, contributing towards many deposit disputes.

See if you can make the right decision, as 'Emma' takes you through a recent case.
