Once the Landlord has accepted your application in principle, an initial application fee of £75.00 will be payable per tenant, £50 per guarantor. This will secure the property for you (subject to acceptable references and contract).
Along with your first months rent and security deposit, an agreement fee of £225.00 per tenancy will be payable immediately before you move into the property. Please see our individual property listings for details.
Our fees are for:
- Compiling, submitting and completing reference reports for submission to your prospective landlord
- Drawing up the tenancy agreement, including any individually negotiated clauses, drawing up a deed of guarantee, if applicable
- Arranging the necessary documents to be signed and witnessed
- Taking payment of the initial pre tenancy sign in payment and securing, until forwarding to the Landlord
- Protection and registration of your tenancy security deposit with an appropriate scheme
Please note: the application fee is payable at the point the Landlord has accepted your application in principle, subject to references. Application fees are non-refundable if the tenancy does not proceed due to you changing your mind, failing your references or credit check or should you fail to submit your online application within 5 days of receipt.
