Please note the charges listed below are the maximum fees that will be applied depending on your circumstances and the number of tenants.
Before any tenancy begins you will sign a tenancy agreement setting out the landlords and tenants obligations. A charge of £350 is made for the preparation of the original agreement and a further £125 for any extension agreement.
Should you change tenants at any point during the tenancy you must inform us and, subject to your landlord’s agreement (which might include the need to take up new references) we will prepare new documents for signature. Our fee for this will be £350.
A security deposit is required equating to at least 1 and a half months' rent. This deposit is held by us or passed to your landlord.
Tenancy deposit protection
Your security deposit must be protected by your agent or the landlord via a government approved tenancy deposit scheme.
