TENANT FEES & INFORMATION
We are members of a redress scheme – The Property Ombudsman. We also are members of a client money protection scheme.
We find homes for a variety of tenants across London, Surrey and Kent. On occasions we may work with other agents, to assist us with viewings only. As we are the instructing agent, you will only pay one admin fee, which is ours as detailed below.
Our admin charges to reference each applicant is currently £150.00 per person inclusive of VAT.
If your application needs to be supported by a Guarantor there will be a further charge of £114.00 per person inclusive of VAT for each named Guarantor. Tenants will be responsible for any administration charges levied by any third party in relation to obtaining references. You will be notified, if this is the case with your particular application.
We also require 25% of the monthly rental as a reservation fee, otherwise sometimes referred to as a holding fee for each week we hold the property. This is to ensure your commitment and that we will secure the property for you pending satisfactory referencing. Please be aware that this amount is deducted from the balance of your first month advance rent payment, assuming that the tenancy goes ahead. Our full terms and conditions of business will be sent to you via email once you submit a verbal offer and it has been accepted in principle by the landlord.
