Tenancy Application

Holding deposit is one week’s rent and is considered an initial instalment as it contributes towards the total move-in monies (one months’ rent in advanced and five weeks deposit (if the rent is less than £50,000 per year) or six weeks deposit (if the rent is more than £50,000 per year)). Once this payment has been received along with a signed Confirmation To Let, the property will be placed under offer. Once your offer is accepted by the Landlord, the referencing process shall begin.

The reservation fee is non-refundable if any relevant person (including any guarantor(s)) withdraw from the tenancy, fails to proceed for any reason, or if the tenancy fails to proceed due to inaccurate information provided in the tenancy application/referencing,  fail a Right-to-Rent check, provide materially false or misleading information, or fail to sign their tenancy agreement (and / or Deed of Guarantee) within 15 calendar days (or other Deadline for Agreement as mutually agreed in writing).

Payment of these fees can be made by BACS/Bank transfer/credit or debit card. If the offer is rejected by the Landlord then the tenant will be offered a refund or chance to re-negotiate. Refunds can take up to 10 working days to clear.

Before you move in

Tenants must complete all referencing required and pay the total move in monies 3-5 working days before moving in (one month rent in advanced, five/six weeks deposit).

End of tenancy

Should the tenant wish to leave their contract early, they shall be liable to the landlord’s costs in re-letting the property as well as all rent due under the tenancy until the start date of the replacement tenancy.
