Tenancy Info

A holding deposit of the equivalent to one weeks rent will be payable by the tenant and deducted from the final balance prior to the commencement of a tenancy agreement. This deposit will reserve the property until the required documentation and references are completed. 

The Deposit is non-refundable should the tenant provide false or misleading information which reasonably affects our decision to let to the tenant (i.e. calls into question their suitability as a tenant, this can include their behaviour in providing the false or misleading information), they fail a right to rent check, withdraw from the proposed agreement (decide not to let) or fail to take all reasonable steps to enter an agreement (i.e. responding to reasonable requests for information required to progress the agreement) when the landlord and/or agent has done so.

The holding deposit is refundable where a tenant later enters into a tenancy agreement but the landlord decides not to rent the property or an agreement is not reached before the deadline for agreement (and the tenant is not at fault).

Prior to the commencement of a Tenancy Agreement the tenant will pay one months rent in advance (less holding deposit) plus a damage deposit ranging from 4-6 weeks rent. The deposit is held either by the landlord or agent in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme, details of which are provided to a tenant within 30 days from the commencement of tenancy.

Tenant Guide

The rental market is fast paced with decisions being made quickly and tenants needing to act swiftly to ensure they do not lose out on the property they are interested in renting. We aim to deliver a quality service that is not time consuming for you the tenant, what we mean by this is not showing you anything and everything we have available but by taking key information about your specific requirements we aim to match you to properties that suit your needs. By arranging multiple viewings where possible this will hopefully save you time enabling you to make an informed decision based on the properties you have seen and therefore minimising the risk of losing out on a property to another interested party.

As a tenant consider that you are not buying the property and tenancies are between 6 and 18 months. It is imperative to remember your key requirements; price, location, size and distance from amenities and schools etc. However, although these are all obviously important it is inevitable when renting that you may need to compromise on certain preferences, be it the walk to a station, how big the garden may be or how new a kitchen is for example!
