Holding Deposit: To secure the property we take a holding deposit of the equivalent of one weeks rent, which is refundable once the tenancy has been taken. Tenancy must be taken within two weeks of placing the holding deposit. Once we have received the holding deposit we cease marketing the property. Should you then decide not to proceed, fail the right to rent checks or has given false or misleading information or fails to provide the information within the deadline then there is no requirement by the landlord or ourselves to refund the deposit.
References: Depending on the applicants circumstances, we will require at least two references which may include – work, bank statements, guarantor, landlord, accountant. We may also carry out a Credit check – if you have a County Court Judgement (CCJ) do not apply. (None of our landlords take Housing Benefit).
Deposit: A security deposit for the equivalent of five weeks rent is required. This is returned at the end of the tenancy subject to all the terms of the tenancy agreement.
Deposit Protection: Tenants deposit is held by the Deposit Protection Service (DPS). This is an independent body who deals with any deposit disputes.
Rents: Rents are payable monthly and in advance.
Tenancy Agreement: This is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) for minimum period of six months
