TDSNI, the leading deposit protection scheme in Northern Ireland, was crowned the UK’s Best Deposit Protection Scheme at the 2018 ESTAS.

It is the third year that Belfast-based TDSNI has scooped the top award at one of the property industry’s most highly-regarded ceremonies.

The award is based on reviews and feedback from customers, where TDSNI scored highly.

The scheme, which operates both Insured and Custodial options, has now won the coveted award three times – a remarkable achievement considering it has only been in operation for five years.

Eamonn Hunt, operations manager at TDSNI, said: “It’s fantastic to have the work that we do for our members recognised and we thank them for their support.”
