TDS – impartial and accountable dispute resolution

At TDS, we are committed to delivering quick, fair and impartial decisions in the many deposit disputes we deal with each year. We recognise that, whether dealing with an adjudication or a complaint about one, the nature of dispute resolution is inherently contentious. To carry out our role effectively, our customers must have confidence that TDS will consider their case on its merits, and the impartial judgement will be brought to bear.

To ensure we meet these objectives, TDS has achieved ‘Complaint Handler’ membership of the Ombudsman Association. This means that we have been able to show that we have significant experience in dealing with disputes. We have also been able to show that we operate in accordance with the Associations’ Principles of Good Complaint Handling when we resolve them.

If you are unhappy with an adjudication decision, please read the complaints procedure here. 

At TDS we are committed to providing you with outstanding service.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received from us, please tell us at the earliest opportunity. We’ll try to resolve it there and then.

Call our Customer Operations department on 0300 037 1000 or email where a Customer Service Advisor will try and resolve your concerns.

If you remain dissatisfied with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and wish to take the issue further, we have a complaints process which you can follow. This document tells you more about how our service complaints process works and how you can complain. Click here to view the document.
