About Us

Protecting deposits in England and Wales

The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) is a government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme in England and Wales operated by The Dispute Service Ltd.

Established in 2003, TDS is the longest serving government-approved deposit protection scheme. We are also the only not-for-profit scheme.

The Housing Act 2004 requires landlords and letting agents to protect deposits on assured shorthold tenancies in a scheme such as ours. We provide both insurance-backed and custodial tenancy deposit protection with free, impartial dispute resolution for when disagreements arise over how the money is divided.
