Treatment of deposits at the end of the tenancy

What if a tenant moves out of the rented property before realising that his deposit hasn't been protected?

The tenant will need to apply for a court order and if the court finds in favour of the tenant the court will order the landlord to repay the deposit amount to him.

In order to avoid this situation, tenants should make sure that their landlord has given them the prescribed information relating to the scheme that is safeguarding their deposit, and check that the deposit is safeguarded.
