Most of you will know who they are, but if you don’t, here’s a bit about them:
TDS is an industry owned and government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme for the residential lettings market. We’re not for profit and don’t have any shareholders. This means that any surpluses can be put back into the business to improve the service for our members.
We support our members to meet their legal obligations to protect tenancy deposits and allow them to retain control of the deposits so they can better manage the end of tenancy process. Where tenancies end in dispute we can provide a free and high quality adjudication service.
This enables our members to focus on their core business of letting homes successfully, safe in the knowledge that deposits are properly protected and disputes can be handled. Through our expert advice, education and training services we help our members minimise disputes, keep their customers happy and drive down the cost of deposit protection.
So there you are. Thats TDS. One of the nicest organisations on the planet.
TDS and the Landlord Law Conference
TDS have been enormously supportive to the Landlord Law Conference and last year’s event would not have been the success it was without their help.
Not only did they pay us a generous sponsorship fee and help promote the event for us, their Head of Adjudications, Mike Morgan stepped in at the last minute, when the published speaker fell ill and was unable to attend, and did one of the best talks of the day!
He will be back again this year talking about adjudications, what you need to do, and giving us some ‘howlers’ from their case files.
For their part TDS are also happy with the association
“We are delighted to continue our association with the Landlord Law Conference. With over 27,000 landlords using TDS, we understand the difficulties they face and this event is a great forum to better understand the law.”
Ben Beadle, Director of Customer Relations
Award winning service and training
As well as doing the actual deposit protection and adjudication work, TDS also do a huge amount of training themselves.
In particular they have a comprehensive four part training program around deposit protection and dispute resolution which is widely used by letting agents up and down the country
They have also won several awards including the prestigious Customer Service Excellence award.
MIke Morgan and his team will be on hand at the Conference to answer any questions you may have about their service or deposit issues generally.
