We are unique in Berkhamsted for providing a complete in-house management service and you will be well looked after by our dedicated team of ARLA trained Property Managers throughout your Tenancy. To complement our management service we have a trusted team of experienced contractors. You will be advised at the outset if the property you have chosen to rent is managed by Home and Abroad Rentals or by the Landlords themselves.
Upon agreeing to rent a property you are required to pay a Holding fee equivalent to one week’s rent, together with our Administration fee of £ 240.00 incl. VAT, plus £ 90.00 incl. VAT for each additional individual being referenced, including guarantors, if applicable. Only then will the property be removed from the market. If you withdraw for any reason or your references are unacceptable, these fees are 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 a minimum of six weeks’ rent (some Tenants may be required to pay a greater Damages Deposit i.e. if they have pets;
The Holding Fee already paid is 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.
