Our members have discounted access to the industry leading training led by TDS Academy such as the TDS foundation and the adjudication workshops.
TDS also provide case studies of past adjudications and many helpful guides in order to help you have successful tenancies.
Unlike other schemes that only allow tenants to raise disputes, we appreciate that there will be occasions where you will need to ‘start the dispute process’. As a member of TDS you will be able to raise a dispute, not just respond.
