Selecting the deposit protection scheme on a tenancy

In Alto, you are able to record which deposit scheme the tenants deposit is to be registered with, and whether it is held by the landlord, if they will be using the Zero Deposit Guarantee, or if there is no deposit held.

Once the deposit charge has been raised and paid, the deposit scheme registration number can be added.
