Client Money Protection (CMP) is separate to statutory deposit protection. As a tenant it is important that you find out from your agent where your deposit is protected if they are dealing with this. You should then verify with the relevant deposit scheme that the deposit is protected properly. If the landlord is handling the deposit protection be sure you find out this information from your landlord.
