Tenancy Deposit Scheme and Property Tribes join forces to promote best practice deposit protection.

The Tenancy Deposit Scheme is working with Property Tribes, the U.K.’s leading landlord & investor community, in a raft of activities to promote deposit protection

April is a themed month of deposit protection content and information in a special “pop up” category that will run throughout the month, powered by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

TDS will be populating this category with information to help landlords understand the importance of deposit protection and ensure they get it right from the start of the tenancy.

Steve Harriott, Chief Executive of TDS said “I am delighted that Property Tribes is dedicating this month to raising awareness of tenancy deposit protection. As a not for profit organisation TDS spends a lot of time helping people understand deposit protection and encouraging them to take advantage of the benefits it brings; higher standards, greater transparency, and better relationships between landlords and tenants.

“We are very aware that landlords have concerns about deposit protection and unintentionally falling foul of the law. The expert information we are sharing with the Property Tribes community this month is invaluable for landlords and it is a great opportunity for them put questions to us directly.”

Nick Tadd, co-founder of Property Tribes commented:  “Since its inception in 2009, Property Tribes has always been about best practice and helping landlords understand their legal obligations, ensuring compliance at all times.

We are delighted to be working with TDS on this special themed month to highlight the important issue of deposit protection.  Educating landlords is a crucial role of our community, and having TDS as part of that process is a big step forwards for us.  We have found that themed months really concentrate the “hive mind” on a particular topic, giving great exposure to our sponsors”.

Following the themed month of April, TDS will continue to be involved with Property Tribes for a further 5 months, powering a “Question of the month” to keep deposit protection at the forefront of landlords minds.

The campaign will include deposit protection information, video interviews, event details, and help and advice for landlords with deposit protection questions and issues.
