We were the first tenancy deposit protection scheme to be approved by the Scottish Government, and it’s not long now until we launch on 2nd July. Landlords and letting agents in Scotland will have a legal requirement to start protecting tenancy deposits from this date. To be one of the first to use our scheme you can pre-register with our existing scheme in England and Wales, The Deposit Protection Service (The DPS). As soon as we launch on 2nd July, all properties with a Scottish postcode will be automatically transferred from The DPS to your LPS Scotland account, which you can access using the same User ID and password.
Please note that, in view of the different legislative requirements, it is important that you do not submit deposit money at this stage.
To register with us now, simply visit www.depositprotection.com and select the option to register online. Use our postcode search facility, so we can accurately transfer the details to the LPS Scotland in July, and remember NOT to submit any deposit money at this stage.
Our phone lines are now live too!
Our phone lines have also gone live today, should you have anything you’d like to speak to one of our customer service agents about.
You can call us on 0844 472 6666, between 8:30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday (excluding weekends and English bank holidays).
If you have any questions about how to register online, what your obligations are, what the timescales are for you to protect deposits, or any questions about the new regulations, you can call us, or visit our website.
