Is it necessary for the details on my deposit protection certificate to match my tenancy agreenent?  I signed a new agreement AST as a sole tenant when a joint tenancy I was a part of ended. The deposit taken for the joint AST was held for my tenancy but the protection was not updated. What are the consequences?

The deposit must be re-protected according to the active tenancy agreement. When the joint tenancy ended, the landlord should have taken the money out of the scheme and back in with only your name and the updated date of the tenancy agreement. It obeys the same rules for protection as any new tenancy. 

Consequences are the same when the landlord has not protected your deposit originally. It’s a new tenancy, therefore new deposit.
