The Letting Protection Service Northern Ireland (The LPS NI) was approved by the Department for Social Development in Northern Ireland to run a deposit protection service in February 2013.  

The service will be free to use and run by Computershare Investor Services PLC which also operates The DPS in England and Wales, and The LPS Scotland, the first Scottish government approved deposit protection scheme.

The LPS NI will provide an impartial, fast, free, fair service. Online self-service allows deposit payment, transfers and repayments at any time. Help and advice is available via a dedicated call centre during office hours and extensive online support channels 24 hours a day. A Dispute Resolution Mechanism (DRM) service helps to resolve any disputes quickly and without the need for court action.
