Who is owed an obligation under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme

In The Housing Act 2004 Section 212 9(a)  it states "references to a landlord or landlords in relation to any shorthold tenancy or tenancies include references to a person or persons acting on his or their behalf in relation to the tenancy or tenancies,"

This potentially means letting agents could be liable for breaching the obligations under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme The leading case in this matter is Draycott v Hannells Letting Limited 2010 full details of which can be located at
