What obligation do Landlords have to Tenants in regard to Deposits.

Tenants are you aware that under the Housing (Tenancy Deposits) (Prescribed Information) Order 2007  not only is it necessary for your deposit to be placed in a protected scheme and for you to be informed of the way in which the scheme works but you must also be provided with details of the Landlord's

Details of the amount of deposit taken
The Start an finish date of the tenancy agreement
Who holds the deposit
and your details should also be noted

An obligation of a landlord that is frequently overlooked is the  requirement that you are informed by reference to the tenancy agreement in what situations deductions can be taken from your deposit.

Further you must be provided with Certification from the Landlord that this information is correct.
