Your Damage Deposit

16 September 2019

As a tenant at CODE Student Accommodation, you will have already paid a damage deposit. This deposit is paid as security against costs that you cause CODE by breaking any terms of your tenancy agreement – most commonly cleaning costs, costs of damage to the property, or for unpaid rent. At the end of your tenancy the deposit should be returned to you, minus any possible deductions.

Since 2007 it has been a legal requirement for landlords and agents to protect tenancy deposits in a government backed schemes. The law only applies to ‘assured shorthold tenancies’ which you will have as a tenant of CODE Student Accommodation.
