Tenant Charges

Upon applying to rent a property you will be required to pay a Holding Deposit equivalent to one week’s rent.  Only then will the property be taken off the market.  If you withdraw for any reason or you, fail a Right-to-Rent check, or provide false or misleading information in support of your application, this Deposit is non-refundable.

Once the terms of your Tenancy are agreed a formal confirmation letter will be provided. As soon as satisfactory references are received a Tenancy Agreement will be prepared for your signature. It is important to note that the following further payments will be required prior to occupation:-

  • The first full month’s rent in advance;
  • A Damages Deposit equivalent to five weeks’ rent;

The Holding Deposit already paid will be deducted from these further amounts due.  We cannot hand over keys to a property until cleared funds have been credited to our clients bank account and the Tenancy Agreement has been signed.

Please ask for a Tenancy Application Form.
