Information for Tenants
- Details of the properties we have available are on the Properties to Let page but the list changes constantly as properties are let and others become available, so please contact us to let us know of your requirements.
- We will not charge you any registration fee or other upfront fee to enter into a tenancy, including a tenancy where a guarantor is required. The only fees that might be payable by you would be those permitted by law, one example being an administration fee that would be charged to cover the cost of the documents and procedures required if you wished to add someone to the tenancy.
- If you have a pet and are moving into a property where the landlord will allow pets a separate Pet Agreement is required. There is no fee for this.
- Usually, we agree a letting subject to satisfactory references, and we require the payment of a holding deposit, equal to one week’s rent, on the following conditions:
- If satisfactory references are not obtained we return the deposit to you.
- On completion of the tenancy agreement the holding deposit is retained by us and used as part of the security deposit mentioned below.
- If you decide not to proceed for any reason the holding deposit is not returnable.
- On completion of the tenancy agreement (when you will be given possession of the property) you will be required to pay a security deposit equal to five week’s rent (less any holding deposit previously paid) plus the first month’s rent in advance.
- Tenancy agreements are usually for an initial fixed term of six months and thereafter from month to month. Rent is payable in advance, so that the second monthly rent payment will, usually, be due one month after you move in, and rent is due monthly after that.
- You have no right to terminate the tenancy during the fixed term and are committed to paying the rent for that term, even if you move out of the property.
- The tenancy can be terminated either on the last day of the fixed term or on any rent day after that. The landlord must give you two month’s notice to terminate, but you are entitled to terminate by giving one month’s notice.
- When the tenancy comes to an end you will be entitled to the return of the security deposit provided that:
- You vacate the property and leave it in the same condition as at the beginning of the tenancy; and
- There is no rent owing on the date of termination.
