New research shows that for the first time since the start of the tenant deposit schemes in 2007 in the UK more landlords and agents are being awarded 100% of the disputed amount at adjudications than tenants.
The figures from the Tenant Deposit Scheme Annual Review 2015 show that 19.8% of all disputes raised by landlords or agents resulted in 100% pay outs to them, while 19.2% of all disputes raised resulted in 100% pay outs to tenants. The remaining 61% of cases saw the disputed money split between the parties.
This compares with 2014 when 20.25% of all disputes raised by tenants resulted in 100% payouts to them, compared with 18.21% to landlords and agents.
