On 31st May 2018, Michael Morgan, Dispute Resolution Director for TDS (Tenancy Deposit Scheme) will be the expert guest on a webinar with Rightmove.

Rightmove has teamed up with industry experts to create a series of webinars, broadcast throughout the entire month of May, designed to help landlords and letting agents stay of the right side of the law when renting properties in the private rented sector (PRS).

Between 09:30 and 10:30 on 31 May, Michael Morgan will be discussing tenancy deposit protection, providing top tips for protecting deposits quickly and easily, and answering any questions viewers may have about how adjudicators decide what deductions can be made at the end of a tenancy.

TDS is the leading Government-backed tenancy deposit protection scheme in the England and Wales, offering both a Custodial and Insured Scheme. As well as protecting deposits, TDS also provides a free and impartial alternative dispute resolution services where disagreements arise over the deductions at the end of tenancy.

The webinar will examine how landlords and agents can better prepare at the beginning of a tenancy to avoid deposit disputes at tenancy end. It will also identify key documents in the deposit protection process and highlight some great tools to help you negotiate the return of the tenancy deposit effectively.

After more than 10 years of deposit protection, landlords still fall foul of the rules for not protecting deposits, and are surprised that they are not always able to claim what they deem fair from the tenancy deposit.  This webinar is a great opportunity to get clued up on how to get it right.

Michael Morgan’s webinar will also provide practical advice on how to present your case to an adjudicator should you need to use our alternative dispute resolution service.
