TCAS Online has a fully integrated solution with TDS. As a student accommodation provider, operational efficiency and processes are key. By automating the TDS, your organisation will save valuable time and deliver a top quality service to your residents offering them peace of mind. The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) is a government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme in England and Wales operated by The Dispute Service Ltd. The Housing Act 2004 requires landlords and letting agents to protect deposits on assured shorthold tenancies in a scheme such as TDS. TDS provides insurance backed tenancy deposit protection with free, impartial dispute resolution for when disagreements arise over how the money is divided.
