Most people have to pay a tenancy deposit to a landlord or letting agency before they can rent a home – often one months’ rent or more. If your landlord has failed to return your deposit, we can help you.


Since 2007, your landlord must put your deposit in a government-backed tenancy deposit scheme (TDP) if you rent your home on an assured shorthold tenancy. The scheme keeps your money safe and makes sure you get back what you're owed at the end of your tenancy.


We help tenants to get back their deposits at our Deposit Recovery Clinic on Tuesday evenings at 7-9pm (registration at 6.30pm) in Croydon.
