Sheffield lawyer warns tenants to be alert to irresponsible landlords
Helen Laycock comments:
“If you’re asked to pay a deposit to a landlord for a tenancy on a domestic property, they have a legal obligation to deposit your money in a Government-approved deposit protection scheme within 30 days of receiving it.
They must also provide you with written evidence that your deposit has been placed in such a scheme. Failure to do either of these things amounts to a breach of their duty towards tenants and could entitle you to compensation.”
