How to win deposit disputes

An essential guide for landlords

  • Do you take deposits for your property?

  • Have you had problems claiming from the deposit at adjudication?

    Surveys show that only about 6% of landlords win outright at adjudications! No wonder landlords often think that the adjudicators are biased against them!

    However the problem is not adjudicator bias – many of them feel quite a lot of sympathy for the landlords. The problem is that they HAVE to make their decisions based on the paperwork and evidence provided to them.


Frequently the paperwork and evidence provided by landlords is not sufficient

Remember – the starting point is always that it is that the deposit is the tenant’s money. Landlords have to prove their right to claim for damage by producing compelling evidence.

The adjudicator never visits the property and makes his decision on the paperwork alone. It is ESSENTIAL that your paperwork and evidence is complete and conclusive. Many landlords however wholly fail to understand the need for this.

However, now help is at hand!
