Once settled on a particular property you wish to rent, we will ask you to complete a written application form. The planned commencement date shall also be determined.
Administration & Agency Fees
At the point you submit your application, a fee is payable to cover the administration / referencing cost, including the preparation of the tenancy documentation and cost of credit references. The fee is non refundable if you fail or withdraw the application.
- One Adult Application : £150.00
- Two Adult Application : £200.00
- Each Additional Adult : £30.00
- Guarantor Fee : £25.00
- Check In & Check Out Fee : £60.00
- Holding Deposit (optional) : £100.00
- Any payment made by credit card : 3%
In order to take the property off the market until the planned tenancy commencement date, a holding deposit is required. The holding fee secures the landlord against all reasonable costs incurred should you withdraw from the agreement or fail to take up the tenancy within the agreed timescales. This is payable at the same time as the Agency Fee.
As part of the application, we will endeavor (with your permission) to obtain written references to support the information you provide. This will usually mean contacting your employer, current or previous landlord and someone to give you a character reference. We will also carry out a credit search, using an independent referencing company.
Should we decide a guarantor is required before a tenancy can be granted; the same process of referencing will apply to the guarantor.
Some landlords may wish to apply certain restrictions to a tenancy. Please find below some examples of typical restrictions that may be imposed:
- Housing Benefit
You should be advised of any restrictions before an agreed viewing of a property takes place.
