As a landlord, you must put any deposit taken in a government-backed tenancy deposit scheme if you rent your home on an assured shorthold tenancy that started after 6 April 2007. The maximum amount you can take as a deposit is the equivalent to six weeks rent. More information on deposit protection can be found here.
