Letter to Request Return of Tenancy Deposit

This is a letter that can be used to request repayment of the tenancy deposit from the landlord or a letting agency.

The document provides a simple template that enables a tenant to request the deposit be repaid by preferred method, and sets out their legal entitlement to such.

This document can be used where the property that was rented is in England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

 

How to use this document

Where there is more than one tenant sending this letter, the tenants should agree on using the address of one of the tenants for corresponding with the landlord or letting agent. Once the document has been completed simply post it to the landlord.

The letter should be sent as soon as possible after the property has been vacated, but in any event before considering commencing any action in court.

 

Applicable Law

England and Wales

The applicable legislation will vary depending upon the type of tenancy agreement, but in most cases the Housing Act 1988 is likely to apply. In addition, for tenancies commencing after 6 April 2007, the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (as established by the Housing Act 2004, amended by the Localism Act 2011 and Deregulation Act 2015) will apply.

Scotland

The legislation may vary depending on the type of tenancy agreement, in most cases the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988 and 2006, the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016, and the Tenancy Deposit Schemes (Scotland) Regulations 2011 will be applicable.

Northern Ireland

The applicable legislation will vary but in most cases the Private Tenancies (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 and the Tenancy Deposit Schemes Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2012 will apply.
