As a tenant, your tenancy deposit should be safe, since every landlord is governed by law to safely deliver the deposit to an authorised tenancy deposit protection scheme. This helps protect your deposit so that the landlord is restricted from spending it.

You can apply for a tenancy deposit claim if your landlord has failed to protect your deposit. Our team will help you get compensation for your lost deposit.

The schemes that protect your deposits

At the time you leave the rented property, your landlord needs to ensure that you receive the complete deposit. Throughout your stay at the property, your deposit (if submitted by the landlord) is protected by;

  • Tenancy deposit scheme (TDS)
  • Deposit protection scheme (DPS)
  • My deposits

In addition, landlords must inform their tenants about the deposit protection scheme they used.

How much you can get compensated for TDC?

In a situation where the landlord has not returned the deposit back to the tenant, the court normally compensates from one to three times the deposited amount. But as cases vary, so does the compensation.

But you don’t have to worry as we will work hard in getting you compensated. With our proven legal process, we will be able to increase your compensation to the maximum.

Are you eligible for a Tenancy Deposit Claim?

Your tenancy deposit claim is valid if;

You are sure or suspect that your landlord didn’t protect your tenancy deposit.
You were not provided with the deposit scheme protection certificate within the first 30 days.
At the end of your stay, you didn’t get your deposit back.

If you think you are eligible to claim then contact legal assist today. We are looking forward to helping you.

Why should I claim?

After the incident, you are left with a lot of pain and bills. These bills are expensive as they cover your treatment, transportation cost and injuries. But, the worst is yet to come as you are unable to attend work and won’t get paid for those days either.

Now let’s look at the other side, when you claim and our solicitors fight your case, you can get compensated for your medical and transportation bills, and also for the days you were not able to go for work. It is a fair deal and you deserve it.

How do I claim

The first step is to call us for a free consultation and we’ll review your case and understand how it should proceed. Then your case will be forwarded to a solicitor who is best suited for this area.

From here, you don’t have to worry about anything as our solicitor will work on your case, gather all the information and create a file that represents you and what you’ve been through, and that you were not the one at fault.
