1 April 2013 has seen more changes to deposit protection.
There are now four authorised schemes: TDS, DPS and mydeposits have been joined by Capita tenacy deposit protection scheme . This is an insurance based, rather than custodial scheme, meaning that the deposit is held by the agent or landlord.
Mydeposits scheme in Northern Ireland went live on 1 April 2013. See their press release here.
