The Problem:

Landlords need to protect tenants' deposits within 30 days of receipt of the money and serve prescribed information, also within the 30 days period.

If you fail to do this - any section 21 notice you serve will be invalid.  Plus the tenant can go to court and claim a penalty award.  The Judge cannot refuse to award this and the penalty will be between 1 and 3x the deposit sum.  Ouch!

The answer?

The Deposit Error Repair Kit.

About the kit in a nutshell

  • Step by step guidance
  • Clear explanation of the law
  • Case studies
  • Checklists and forms
  • A quiz to test what you have learned
  • Online only, mobile friendly website
  • Written by specialist landlord & tenant lawyer Tessa Shepperson

Need to evict your tenant? Avoid expensive problems and delays:

It can take six months or more to evict a tenant through the courts - even if everything goes smoothly.

If you get to court, only to find that your section 21 notice is invalid, or that your tenant has reduced your rent arrears claim to zero by bringing a claim for the penalty, this can be expensive and add many months to time it takes to get your property back.

Get this kit and get peace of mind when you learn how to resolve these problems before they happen.

If things go wrong and you need to use solicitors - this will cost far more than this kit!

Your questions:

  • q-iconTessa, Can you tell me a bit more about your credentials?

    I qualified as a solicitor in 1990 and ran my own specialist landlord & tenant law firm, TJ Shepperson, for nearly 20 years.  I closed this in 2013 to concentrate on Landlord Law and my separate training business.  I am well respected in the industry.

  • q-iconWhat if I don't like the kit - can I get my money back?

    Yes, we have a 30 day money back guarantee. Just email me (or use the Kit website support section contact form) and let me know before the 30 days is up. I will cancel your membership of the kit and refund your money.

  • q-iconIs there CPD?

    Not yet, although we do have some quizzes to help you learn.  The software does not currently support CPD certificates although we have put in a request to the developers for this.

  • q-iconDo I have to pay online?

    It is a lot easier and quicker if you pay online.  If this is not possible for any reason, send us a message via the support section and ask for an invoice.  Note that there is an admin charge for invoicing of £5.

  • q-iconCan you guarantee that I will get my Court order if I get your kit?

    I can’t absolutely guarantee this as litigation is inherently risky, and failure to protect the deposit is only one of the things that can go wrong. However so far as the failure to protect the deposit issue is concerned, if that is the only issue, I am confident that if you follow the kit instructions, the Judge will grant your possession order. But if for some reason he (or she) does not – get in touch and I will refund your payment.

  • q-iconWhat if my computer does not work with your online kit system?

    The kit is hosted on a wordpress site and there is no reason why you should not be able to access it – provided you keep a record of your password and user name (and we can remind you of these if you forget). But  if you have problems you can always cancel and get a refund under our guarantee – provided you do this within 30 days of purchase.

100% Money Back Guarantee

No quibble 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

If you find that the kit is not suitable for you - simply let us know within 30 days of purchase, and your money will be refunded to you, no questions asked.

I found the kit easy to use and very helpful. I found the examples Tessa used to illustrate the points of law particularly helpful. I now feel like I am informed and have confidence to proceed.
