Quote from: Hippogriff on August 14, 2023, 09:05:57 AMWhy is this considered urgent?Can you not just log in to the appropriate Scheme's site and find your Deposit (or not)?Anyway, my reading of the situation persists - just as it did before - but only from the Scheme's own website(s). Note the TDS - In the Insured scheme, a new deposit protection charge is payable if: and one situation is A fixed term tenancy is renewed, even if the renewal is on the same terms as the previous tenancy. and MyDeposits - If a new fixed term tenancy is granted then the deposit protection must be renewed/re-protected and the relevant fee paid - and note the mention of fixed term, you have a mix, currently on SPT.In my Landlord head - new fee == new admin. == new Deposit, That's why I'd always play it safe... but I don't issue renewals... I'd still like to see this written in black-and-white in some Act or what-have-you.

You commenced the tenancy in 2020.You have 6 years to bring a valid Deposit protection kind of claim - you don't need to do it as you're vacating. In fact, many of us would advise you don't... let them try what they want to try and - then - if appropriate the Landlord can receive a letter out of the blue when they least expect it.Rest easy.

It might be the case that contradictory information exists on webpages found on the Internet.
