You will need to pay a deposit before you move into your new home if you are renting:
- One of our private homes
- Student accommodation
- Key worker accommodation
Your deposit will not be more than the amount equal to 5 weeks' rent.
We'll put your deposit in the Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS). They'll send you a letter or an email to confirm they have received it and let you know your unique deposit ID number.
If you leave your home clean, in good repair and have a zero balance rent account when you move out, you'll get your full deposit back.
