We can claim your rental deposit back
AND compensation of up to 9 x your deposit

Have you ever paid a deposit to a landlord to rent a residential property and not had it returned when you moved out? There might or might not be good reasons for the landlord withholding some or all of your deposit, and it can be very difficult to claim it back. But if YOUR LANDLORD HAS NOT INSURED YOUR RENTAL DEPOSIT, as is required by the law, then Claim My Rental Deposit can use its legal expertise to help you claim your deposit back and even secure some compensation for you, of up to 9 x the value of your deposit!

What does the Law say?

  • Since the 6th April 2007, any landlord that takes a deposit in regards to a tenancy on residential property is required to protect the deposit by insuring it in one of 3 government approved schemes.
  • The landlord is required to insure/pay the deposit into the scheme within 14 days of the tenant paying the deposit.
  • Where the landlord takes a deposit but does not insure it, the landlord can be taken to court for its return. The court can award a penalty/compensation of up to 3 times the deposit paid for each breech, plus the return of the original amount paid.

Has your landlord insured your rental deposit?

It is estimated that there are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of landlords who are holding rental deposits illegally because they have not insured them.

If you believe your deposit has not been insured by your landlord, and you are having difficulty getting all or some of your deposit back:
