What is a statutory declaration form?

If you have requested repayment of the deposit through TDS Custodial and the other party has not responded, you must complete a statutory declaration before we can release the deposit to you. 

We will send the statutory declaration template to you automatically when the time for the other party to respond to your repayment request has expired. There is no need to contact us for this. 

This is a legislative requirement. TDS Custodial does not have any discretion to release the deposit without receiving a statutory declaration in these circumstances.
