Understanding the Law

Under the provision of the U.K. Housing Act 2004, if you have a tenancy that started after April 2007, and you take a deposit, then the landlord or agent must protect the deposit using a government-authorised tenancy deposit scheme and serve all the required documentation within 30 days.
