Hi

 

Have a look at this Scottish Government Link on Deposits: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Built-Environment/Housing/privaterent/government/SGTD1

 

A tenancy deposit scheme is a scheme provided by an independent third party to protect deposits until they are due to be repaid. Three schemes are now operating:


  • The Letting Protection Service Scotland
  • Safedeposits Scotland
  • My|deposits Scotland

Landlord's legal duties

 

The legal duties on landlords who receive a tenancy deposit are:

 


  • to pay deposits to an approved tenancy deposit scheme
  • to provide the tenant with key information about the tenancy and deposit

Key dates for landlords

 

The dates by which landlords must pay deposits to an approved scheme and provide information to the tenant vary, depending on when the deposit was received:

 

1. Deposit received prior to 7 March 2011:

 

Where the tenancy is renewed by express agreement or tacit relocation on or after 2 October 2012 and before 2 April 2013 (Regulation 47(a))

 

Within 30 working days of renewal

 

In any other case (Regulation 47(b))

 

By 15 May 2013

 

2. Deposit received on or after 7 March 2011 and before 2 July 2012 (Regulation 48)

 

By 13 November 2012

 

3. Deposit received on or after 2 July 2012 and before 2 October 2012 (Regulation 4)

 

By 13 November 2012

 

4. Deposit received on or after 2 October 2012 (Regulation 3)

 

Within 30 working days of the beginning of the tenancy

 

Hope this helps.

yeah that makes sense.

 

in that case what would my landlord have been obligated to do with my deposit prior to the scheme being enforced?
