For properties that are managed by Scott Symonds Estate Agents the deposit are registered the with a My Deposits Scheme, in accordance with the requirements of the Housing Act 2004. For those where we are providing a Tenant Find service only, then your deposit will be passed to your Landlord who will be responsible for registering your deposit in accordance with the Deposit Regulations.
For those deposits that we register with the DPS, within 0-2 weeks of moving into the property, you will receive a letter from us confirming the registration of your deposit and giving you details of your Unique ID Reference number.
Its very important that you keep this letter safe as at the end of the tenancy you will need your reference number in order to claim your deposit back.
If, for any reason, you mislay this, you will need to contact the TDS direct and arrange for them to re-issue it to you. Please note that this takes between 5-10 working days and, due to data protection, is not something that we can arrange for you.
You can contact them and find all there information on www.mydeposits.co.uk
