LETTING PROCEDURE If the property is suitable a prospective tenant will be asked to complete a simple Referencing form and Right to Rent check. We require photo ID for all adults living at the property (e.g. Passport or Driving licence with paper counterpart). The application form(s) will be passed to an insurance investigating company who will provide credit checks and a report (usually within a few days). The property will be held pending the outcome of an application. If the results of these checks are satisfactory then the tenancy can proceed. This property is available for an initial 6/12 month term thereafter a tenancy renewal term can be discussed. The landlord will require a returnable deposit equivalent to 5 weeks rent. No interest will accrue on the deposit, which will be registered with The Dispute Service (www.thedisputeservice.co.uk) in line with the new tenancy deposit scheme. We do offer an alternative deposit replacement service, please ask a member of the team for further information regarding this.
PERMITTED PAYMENTS Early termination of your tenancy should you need to terminate your tenancy prior to the date in the agreement, we would need to seek permission from your landlord. We would normally need to find a new tenant to take over from the date you wish to vacate, but you will be responsible for the rent up to the date of the expiry of the agreement or until such time as new tenants sign a tenancy agreement, whichever is sooner. We will charge 50% of one month`s rent + VAT, representing the charge for early termination.

We will not be acting as managing agents for this property.
HOLDING FEE A holding deposit will be required to reserve the property. This will be equal to One weeks rent and will go towards the total figure due on the date of occupancy. The holding deposit is taken and will be retained if the tenant provides false or misleading information, fails a Right to Rent Check, Withdraws from the property for no legitimate reason or fails to take all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement and the landlord or agent takes all reasonable steps to do so. If a holding deposit is taken and a tenancy has not been signed into with 15 days, we would require written consent from the tenant to extend this period.
