Deposit protection scheme

Can I evict my tenant without returning their deposit?

No, you can only get a possession order from the court if:

  • you return the deposit to your tenant in full (or with agreed deductions)
  • the tenant has made a tenancy deposit claim and the court has decided the outcome
  • the tenant has withdrawn a tenancy deposit claim or the matter has been otherwise settled
