Check whether your tenancy deposit is protected!
If you are renting under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy your landlord should protect your deposit in an approved tenancy deposit protection scheme within 30 days of receipt. If he or she doesn't you could claim compensation of up to 3 times the amount of your deposit.
You can check your deposit online. There are links below to check each of the approved schemes. If you don't know which scheme has been used, ask your Landlord, or check all three. You will need to have your tenancy details handy before you start.
If your deposit IS NOT protected, contact advice(su) for advice on what to do next
