Making an Offer
When you find your ideal property that is within your budget, the next step is to make an offer. At this time, we carry out a reference check and forward your information to the landlord for your offer to be accepted.
Having viewed the property you wish to rent we would ask for a holding deposit. This is one week’s rent equivalent. This is then deducted from the move in monies.
Example for a property that has a rent of £700 per calendar month
1st month’s rent £700
Deposit 5 weeks rent equivalent £807.00
Monies requested to be paid prior to moving in £1,507.00
LESS the Holding Deposit £161.00
Total amount required to move in with £1346.00
If the landlord accepts your offer, both you and your landlord sign the relevant paperwork, which binds you into the contract. You will then pay your first month’s rent and deposit. This is signed by ALL TENANTS, and us on the Landlord’s behalf, normally. There is no cost to you for this initial agreement.
Changes to tenancy asked for by the Tenant. If you wish to change the tenancy to include another person for example (who we would have to have full knowledge of) there is a charge of £50 per variation. Should you wish to leave the tenancy early with the agreement of the Landlord it can be arranged but you will need to pay your rent until a new tenant is found but no longer that the end of the end of the tenancy. In view of the expenses caused by your early termination we would charge you £250 to cover our expenses of taking instructions from the Landlord, re-advertising, viewings, releasing deposit and of course ensuring the new interested people are suitable tenants.
If an inventory is supplied by the Landlord, it will show by photos and words the condition of the property immediately prior to you moving in. You will have 7 days to report back with anything you do not agree with in the inventory. The inventory AMENDED by you is then used at the check out.
