Most landlords request that you pay a security deposit to protect them against non-payment of rent, damages, or any other breach of a condition of your tenancy.
Your landlord must put your deposit in a government-backed tenancy deposit scheme (TDP) if you rent your home on an assured shorthold tenancy that started after 6 April 2007.
Once your tenancy has ended, you will be able to get your deposit back, subject to any deductions for rent arrears, damages, unpaid bills, or any other costs incurred through breaching any terms & conditions of your tenancy.
