Tenancy deposit scheme looking after £800 million

More than £800 million has been deposited in the tenancy deposit schemes, an increase of a quarter of a billion pounds in less than 12 months, covering more than 800,000 tenancies and 1.25 million tenants. The number of disputes has also risen, with 6,000 handled in 2015/9. It has been nearly two years since the schemes were introduced after a campaign by HHSE.
