Introduce a Deposit Protection Scheme Now

For over a decade, Threshold has been campaigning for the introduction of a Deposit Protection Scheme.

A deposit will often represent the full extent of an individual or family’s savings and the failure of a landlord to return a deposit can create significant financial hardship and distress.

The introduction of a Deposit Protection Scheme would enable tenants’ to lodge their rental deposit with an independent third party such as the RTB, and ensure the prompt return of deposit at the end of a tenancy.

I support Threshold's call to implement a Deposit Protection Scheme to safeguard rental deposits and protect tenants in the private rented sector.
