Housing (Tenancy Deposits) (Prescribed Information) Order 2007
This Act requires the landlord to supply the tenant with prescribed information regarding any tenancy deposit that is required to be dealt with under either a) the custodial or b) the insurance backed tenancy deposit schemes, both of which can be found here.
Key parts of the Act are:
- The operation of the provisions contained in s212 (tenancy deposit schemes);
- s213 (requirements relating to tenancy deposits) and s214 (proceedings relating to tenancy deposits);
- s215 (sanctions for non-compliance);
- Schedule 10 of the 2004 Act (provisions relating to tenancy deposit schemes).
This must also be accompanied by a copy of the Scheme’s Tenant’s Leaflet and a copy of the Deposit Protection Certificate (which must be signed by the Landlord/Agent) which gives most (but not all) of the prescribed information and which must be signed by the landlord/agent.
