Once the relevant forms have been filled in and the administration fee paid the property will be the marked as ‘let subject to contract’. Upon the return of satisfactory references and the Landlord has agreed to the tenancy a holding fee of £200 will be requested to reserve the property
If the application is rejected before references have been requested we will refund all monies paid. If the tenancy is accepted subject to references and your application is rejected due to adverse information found during referencing or you choose to withdraw all fees will be forfeited. If your application has been accepted and the landlord choses to withdraw due to a change in his/her circumstances we will refund all monies paid.
Before moving in to a property payment of the first month’s rent and deposit must be made by bank transfer or cash payment. Cheques are accepted but must be cleared in our account before a tenancy will be drawn up.
As standard practise all our tenancy’s are drawn up for a 6 months if you require a longer or shorter period you must seek clarification before submitting an application. At the end of the 6 months a new agreement shall be entered into if accepted by the landlord. An administration charge of £50 plus vat (£60) will be payable.
Details of our fees will be provided again within the application form which all applicants and guarantors must complete and sign as standard.
