We would like to provide clarity of the fees that will become payable when you apply to rent a property we are marketing. We believe you should understand these before you make any decision about a property.

We set out below how our fees are calculated. These will usually cover Referencing, Tenancy Agreement administration and Inventory Checks. These will be paid in addition to any Rent and Deposit that is due under a Tenancy Agreement.

Tenant Deposit

A deposit equivalent to six weeks rent, (calculated by dividing the annual rent by 52 and multiplying by 6), will be required to be paid at the start of the tenancy. This is subject to referencing, a landlord may require a higher deposit if the referencing criteria is not met, further details will be provided at that time. We currently use The Deposit Protection Service which is Government approved.

Fee £ Inc. VAT Explanation
Referencing £360.00/per property This is charged & a non refundable charge.
Guarantor Referencing £84.00£/ Guarantor Only if a Guarantor is required and charged for each guarantor that is referenced.
Company Referencing £360.00 Company or Business reference fee.
Tenancy Agreement £0.00 No charge for this service.
Unfurnished Inventory Check (Tenants Share) £0.00 No charge for this service.
Furnished Inventory Check (Tenants Share) £0.00 No charge for this service.
Renewal/Extension agreements £114.00 One off charge for each renewal/extension.

You should be aware that the need for a Guarantor may not become apparent until your referencing, (including for any joint tenants) has been completed, therefore guarantor referencing fee(s) will only become payable should a guarantor be required.

Please ask us to explain these to you, once we know your circumstance and how many tenants are applying for the property you are interested in, we can confirm the fees that could become payable.
