How to reserve a rental property:
In order to reserve a house, flat or apartment, a holding fee of 50% of the first month’s rent is generally required along with the applicable agency fee. If the prospective tenant withdraws the offer or if the referencing fails for any reason the fees are non refundable. If the landlord withdraws, the holding fee and agency fee are returned.
What proof of ID is needed when renting a property?
At the time of application we will need proof of ID for example a passport or driving licence along with your National Insurance Number.
What reference fees are payable?
We charge reference fees which cover the application for a rental property, to cover credit check, employer’s and previous landlord’s references. We ask each tenant to fill in and sign a reference form before the process can begin.
If a Guarantor reference is required there is a further, slightly increased fee, required from the tenant, because we carry out additional checks for a Guarantor. Where a Guarantor is required we also ask that he/she fills in a Deed of Guarantee form.
Are there any other rental fees?
No. We do not charge for check-ins, check outs or going through an inventory.
