I'm renting on an AST in Scotland. My landlord (agency) is in England. I heard nothing from them about my deposit protection scheme after moving in a year ago, and have enquired again recently but received no reply.


I have read that landlords in England and Wales must protect the deposit by law, but have been trying to find out if this still applies if the property is in Scotland. All information I can find is vaguely worded.


Anybody understand the true situation here?

The legislation that applies is that within the property lies - i.e. Scotland.


I assume it is a Short Assured Tenancy?
