How do I get my deposit back from a landlord?

If you have signed an AST (Assured Shorthold Tenancy), your landlord legally is required to place your deposit in a deposit protection scheme. 

Your deposit will be released by the scheme at the end of your tenancy and returned via your landlord. Any queries about the method of return should be discussed with your landlord/agent.
