Tenancy deposit protection news

Shelter's advice line saw a 40 per cent rise in calls about rent deposit issues last year .

It hopes that new laws on tenancy deposit schemes, will help when they are introduced later this year.

The new changes will mean that tenants will still be able to make a claim against their landlord after their tenancy ends, it will also block the loop hole that allowed landlords who were prosecuted for not placing a deposit in any of the registered schemes to sign up posthumously before the case comes to court, which did seem rather ridiculous.
