All this information needs to be filled in by you AND it is essential to complete the POST TENANCY ADDRESS as this will be used to return your deposit.  You can use your work address (but remember to let the DPS know if you change jobs mid tenancy) or you can use a friend or family member’s address.  If we cannot get hold of you at the end of the tenancy, the Deposit Protection Service may be unable to return your deposit to you.

If we have not received your documents within 3 working days or heard from you for a valid extension, the property will need to be placed back onto the market and you may lose out.
