The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) is operated by The Dispute Service Limited, a not for profit company authorised by the government to run an insurance based tenancy deposit protection, as set out in the Housing Act 2004.
The Tenancy Deposit Scheme is a multi-award winning organisation, named Tenancy Dispute Service of the Year 2012 by PropertyDrum, awarded the Government Standard for Customer Service Excellence, and was a finalist in the Customer Service category at the Landlord and Lettings Awards 2013.
TDS is the only not for profit provider of tenancy deposit protection and we plough any surpluses we make back into the business for the benefit of our members and those using our service.
