HOLDING DEPOSIT: A holding deposit of half a month’s rent will be taken on application in order to reserve the property and remove it from our marketing and property list. This will be taken off the first month’s rent or returned in full if for any reason the Landlord or the Landlord’s Agent withdraws the offer of a tenancy, unless the applicant withheld relevant information or furnished information that was found to be false or misleading or if insufficient references are obtained. The holding deposit will not be returned if tenant decides to withdraw from the application.
TENANCY & SETUP FEE: A charge of £300.00 is due prior to commencement of the tenancy to cover the costs of negotiating the tenancy, preparation of all paperwork and registering the security deposit. This is not a registration charge, neither is it refundable should for any reason your application not proceed.
CREDIT CHECK AND REFERENCING CHARGE: A charge of £50.00 per applicant is due on application as payment for taking references and obtaining a credit report for each applicant. If a guarantor is required an additional charge of £50.00 is to be paid for a credit report and preparing the guarantor agreement.
SECURITY DEPOSIT: The equivalent of one and a half month’s rent is required. Provided there are no disputes over unfair wear and tear, damage or dirt, rent outstanding or unpaid utility bills, the deposit will be returned to the tenant within 28 days of the end of the tenancy. Under no circumstances is the security deposit to be used as part or all of the last month’s rent. Where a pet is to reside in the property, a deposit equivalent to two months’ rent is required. The security deposit will be held by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.
