Tenant Fees

Once you have located a property, we will typically require two week’s rent as a holding deposit, plus the cost of obtaining references, to secure the property. This holding deposit will be deductible from the actual deposit when that is paid. Once satisfactory referencing is completed, a move-in date can be arranged. The contract will then need to be signed and final payment made in cleared funds.

Fees that will apply before, during and at the end of your tenancy are listed below.  If you have any questions, please speak to a member of staff.
