Lawrence GreenbergLawrence Greenberg, the Independent Case Examiner, is stepping down from the Tenancy Deposit Scheme as from June 1.

His departure comes as The Board of The Dispute Service, which runs the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, (TDS) announced major changes to the management and governance of The Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

A Chief Executive Officer will be sought to oversee the team and the Chief Operations Officer, Debra Rymer, has been asked to continue in her current position. Michael Morgan will take over as acting Head of Adjudication.

The Board has expressed its gratitude to Lawrence Greenberg for the major role he has played in setting up, first, the TDSRA and then the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

“His knowledge and experience of mediation, arbitration and dispute resolution have made the Scheme the leader in tenancy deposit protection,” said Professor Martin Partington, Chairman of The Dispute Service.

Other elements in the review of TDS operations have included a comprehensive examination of all dispute procedures. This has been completed and will be subject to external audit once the new systems have had a chance to bed down.

Details of the construction of the new Members’ User Group will be announced shortly.
