Compensation For A Tenancy Deposit Claim In The UK
The United Kingdom Law requires every landlord to place tenant deposits in a TDP or Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme. They do this to safeguard the tenant's money and ensure the landlord returns the money promptly at the end of the tenancy. The landlord should abide by the law and provide you with a copy of the "deposit protection certificate" within 30 days of receiving the deposit. If you didn't receive such a certificate within 30 days of handing over your deposit, you are likely entitled to a tenancy claim.

What To Do If You Have A Tenancy Deposit Claim?
When the landlord doesn't protect your tenancy deposit, you have the right to claim compensation. The tenant can ask for compensation if the landlord or his agent has broken the tenancy deposit rules. He or she may receive 1-3 times the deposit amount under such circumstances. The tenant can claim compensation if the landlord:
Failed to protect the deposit within 30 days of receiving it
Didn't give you confirmation about protecting your deposit within 30 days
Failed to keep the deposit protected throughout your tenancy
You should consult a qualified solicitor like Angelus Law to get your compensation. Our solicitors take your case on under a conditional fee agreement - known as "no win no fee." You will need to gather evidence to support your case when calling a solicitor to handle it. You should have a copy of your tenancy agreement, records of rent payments, the receipt of confirmation for the deposit, and letters to and from your landlord when making a claim for compensation from the landlord.
Our expert solicitors will send a formal "letter before action" to the landlord before starting your court claim. This letter should set out the details about the claim. Call our expert law firm - Angelus Law - for all your tenancy deposit compensation cases in the United Kingdom.

Tenancy Deposit Compensation - Understand Your Rights
The rights of a tenant are often unclear and confusing. Our team can offer solid advice to help minimise your worry and stress. When a tenant pays a deposit to a landlord for a rental property, the landlord has 30 days to place the money in one of three tenancy protection schemes. They should do so and present you with the relevant certificate before the end of 30 days. Here are the three tenancy protection schemes:
Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS)
Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS)
This is a legal requirement enacted to stop landlords from misusing the money. The deposit money should be readily available at the end of the tenancy. Your landlord is legally obliged to give you a copy of the deposit protection certificate within 30 days of receiving your deposit. Unfortunately, many landlords ignore their legal obligations. If your landlord breaks the law, you can sue him/her for an amount up to fourfold your deposit. The judge or jury will determine the amount you receive as compensation. Each time you renew the lease agreement, your landlord has another 30 days to protect your deposit. If he or she fails to do so, it's a separate breach. You can sue the landlord for each instance.
Who Can Claim?
Any tenant who thinks the landlord isn't protecting his/her deposit money or didn't give the deposit protection certificate within 30 days of receiving the deposit can claim for tenancy deposit compensation.
