Info a landlord must give a tenant

A landlord who takes a tenant deposit must provide their tenant with certain information to stay legal.  The information known as the section 213 notice has taken on more importance since the tightening up of the tenancy deposit scheme legislation as a result of the Localism Act 2011.

Once you have received your tenants rental deposit a landlord has 30 days to tell their tenant:

    •    the address of the rented property
    •    how much deposit you’ve paid
    •    how the deposit is protected
    •    the name and contact details of the tenancy deposit protection (TDP) scheme and its dispute resolution service
    •    their (or the letting agency’s) name and contact details
    •    the name and contact details of any third party that’s paid the deposit
    •    why they would keep some or all of the deposit
    •    how to apply to get the deposit back
    •    what to do if you can’t get hold of the landlord at the end of the tenancy
    •    what to do if there’s a dispute over the deposit
