Information for Tenant Fees

As part of our application process for a property to rent, there are fees due for the agency's services such as referencing, tenancy agreement administration and and inventory checks. These will be charged in addition to the Rent and Deposit due before the tenancy starts.  

Once you have decided that you would like to apply for a particular property, the specific payments associated with that property will be explained further detailing how to reserve the property by paying the first installment and when to pay the second installment before the contract begins and keys are exchanged.   

Please note, if a property is reserved and then the tenant changes their mind or pulls out; the reservation fee is non refundable.  The reservation fee usually consists of the Reference fees and 1 week deposit.  

References £125 per person applying for the tenancy
Guarantor Reference £100 per person required as a Guarantor
Company Reference £250 Company or Business fee for reference
Tenancy Agreement £105

The fees above will usually cover Referencing, Tenancy Agreement administration and Inventory Checks. These will be paid in addition to any Rent and Deposit that is due under a Tenancy Agreement.

A deposit equivalent to six weeks rent (calculated by dividing the annual rent by 52 and multiplying by 6) will be required to be paid at the start of the tenancy. This is subject to referencing, a landlord may require a higher deposit if the referencing criteria is not met, further details will be provided at that time.

You should be aware that the need for a Guarantor may not become apparent until your referencing, (including for any joint tenants) has been completed, therefore guarantor referencing fee(s) will only become payable should a guarantor be required.

Please ask us to explain the fees to you, once we know your circumstance and how many tenants are applying for the property you are interested in, we can confirm the fees that could become payable.
