Tenants Requirements

A Holding Fee, equal to one week’s rental is to be paid on proceeding with a property, at which time the property is held exclusively subject to satisfactory references being obtained. In the event of unsatisfactory referencing or withdrawal by the Tenant from the property, the Holding Fee is non-refundable subject to cost incurred under the Contractual Agreement.

Referencing checks will be carried out on all prospective parties aged 18 or over who will reside at the property as the Tenant(s).

As part of the required checks we will require

  • Proof of address – this must be where you currently reside and dated within the last 3 months. This could be in the form of a bank statement, utility bill or council tax statement.

Under the Right to Rent Act Immigration Act 2014, we require Identification:

  • Photographic ID – a valid passport, identity card or driving licence and birth certificate

Upon signing the Tenancy Agreement, the balance of funds due is one month’s rent in advance and a Damage Deposit equal to five weeks rental, less the Holding Fee paid

Damage Deposit Information

The Damage Deposit will be held by a Nominated Scheme Provider. The Deposit is returnable at the end of the Tenancy Agreement to the Tenant, provided that the Tenancy Agreement terms and conditions are complied with, and the property is left in a satisfactory condition with fair, wear and tear taken into consideration.
