All landlords who register with a local authority and take a deposit from a tenant must comply with requirements of the Tenancy Deposit Schemes (Scotland) Regulations 2011.
A landlord must register the tenants deposit within 30 working days of the tenancy starting with one of the following three approved schemes:
Landlords must provide tenants with information on which scheme their deposit is lodged with. If a deposit is not submitted to a scheme and information is not provided, tenants can apply to the Housing and Property Chamber - First-Tier Tribunal for Scotland against you for non-compliance with the Regulations.
If the First-tier Tribunal is satisfied that your landlord has failed to comply, they must order your landlord to pay you up to three times the amount of the deposit. If you move out of your home before realising that your landlord has not complied with the Regulations, you will have up to three months after the tenancy has ended to make an application.
