Deposit protection training for landlords

The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) will continue to offer buy-to-let landlords across the country special training on tenancy deposit schemes, as part of wider efforts to raise the standards in the private rental sector.

The Foundation Course and Adjudication Workshops offered by the TDS, which is being held in major cities across the UK, provide accredited Continued Professional Development (CPD) certification.

The Foundation Course is a full day training session focussing on the key points of tenancy deposit protection and is designed specifically for landlords, as well as property managers, administrators and inventory suppliers.

The training session cover a wide range of topics covering legislation, tenancy agreements, check-in and check-out procedures, calculating damage and whether disputes are appropriate or not. 

The Adjudication Workshop is a half-day course that teaches landlords how to ‘think like an adjudicator’. It will focus on TDS’s Alternative Dispute Resolution programme, discussing various scenarios and case studies.

Attendees generally tend to leave with a better understanding of what evidence an adjudicator looks for in disputes and provides tips for presenting a case, and resolving disputes.

Tickets for the five remaining courses this year, which are set to take place in Birmingham, London, York and Cardiff, can be booked by clicking here.
