Deposit Claim

Deposit Protection Is A Nightmare For Landlords is the answer to frustrating deposit disputes. 

Tenants often leave a mess at the end of the tenancy for you to clear up or leave owing you money. That's what the security deposit is for, but now you have to go through a long and drawn out claim process to get any deposit money. You know those claims are stressful and difficult but did you know that landlords lose money in 92% of deposit protection claims?

Your chances of winning

Only 8% of claims are decided in the landlords favour!

The pie chart above shows the official figures released by the schemes on how likely you are to lose a deposit protection claim. According to the statistics, landlords lose all their money in 49% (basically half) of all the cases decided by the deposit protection schemes, and lose some of their claim in 43% of cases.

"Deposit Claim resolved my tenant/landlord dispute, and I was able to quickly recover all of the funds that were due. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone" Mitch Goldman
