Landlords ordered to pay out over non-compliance

Posted on Friday 20th of September 2013

The first rulings under the Tenancy Deposit Schemes (Scotland) Regulations 2011 were issued this month - emphasising the importance of landlords and letting agents complying with the Regulations in order to save time, money and their reputation in the long run. In Fraser and Pease v Meehan, the landlord had failed to transfer the tenants' deposit to a tenancy deposit scheme or issue the Prescribed Information required under Article 42 of the Regulations. The Sheriff found that a...Read More

The Mission

Posted on Tuesday 17th of March 2015

Welcome to my first blog post. I had planned to write this at the beginning of the year and already it's March – time flies when you're having fun! It's been nearly two years since I started at SafeDeposits Scotland, and for the majority of that time I have been very office focused, but for very good reasons. Finding and moving into our new Glasgow offices, bringing our call centre back in-house, growing the team, paying off our start up loan, treasury...Read More

Thousands in unclaimed deposits

Posted on Tuesday 31st of March 2015

I feel like titling this blog post "Claim your free money here" but that might cause our internet and phone systems to crash, so I'll tread more carefully!

As of March 2015, SafeDeposits Scotland...Read More

This blog post is for guidance only – it is not intended to guarantee when an award will be made. Each dispute is different and the actual award made will be based on our interpretation of the specific evidence presented to us. Repair or replace? This...Read More
