Our tenancies are for a minimum period of 6 months on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. Reference checks will be required prior to occupancy. Rental values are shown on each listing as a per month charge and are exclusive of rates and outgoings.
As well as paying the rent, you may also be required to make the following permitted payments (INC VAT where applicable / Credit cards not accepted):
Holding Deposit (equivalent to one weeks rent / non transferrable between properties) - Upon receipt of successful references, it is explicitly agreed that the holding deposit will be attributed towards the first months rent. The holding deposit will be refunded in full within seven days if the tenancy agreement has been signed by a tenant but our landlord withdraws from the transaction or the agreed deadline date passes without the agreement being signed and no new deadline confirmed in writing. The holding deposit will not be refunded if: a tenant provides false or misleading information within the application (please refer to to our application form for referencing criteria); failure of the "Right to Rent" check, withdrawal from the transaction (unless our landlord client(s) act within a way where it would not be reasonable for a tenant to proceed) or failure to take all reasonable steps to enter into the tenancy agreement. You will be notified in writing (within seven days) if the application has been unsuccessful and the reasons for this.
Security Deposit (equivalent to five weeks rent - six weeks for annual rents over £50,000)
Utilities (inc communication services and television licence - if any utilities are inc. within the monthly rent, this will be the reasonable costs incurred, stated in the tenancy agreement and marketing details).
Replacement keys and other security devices - charged at the cost of the key(s) and other security device(s) replacement(s)
Rent arrears - 3% above Bank of England base rate
