  1. Application Fees – When an application is made for a property, a tenancy application fee of £95.00 is payable per tenant. This fee is non refundable and non negotiable. Please note this fee is paid at the time of submitting your application forms. A further £50.00 is payable if a guarantor is required.


  1. Rents and Deposits – Upon the signing of the assured shorthold tenancy agreement a month’s rent in advance is payable together with a deposit equivalent to at least a month’s rent and £150.00 when the contracts are drawn up – non refundable. Please note that the deposit will be held until the end of the tenancy and returned to you once the property has been checked subject to any remedial work which may be required. If a deposit is paid and the property has been taken off the market and the tenant then decides not to proceed with the application the deposit may be held by the landlord for loss of rent.
