As of 2019, Tenants no longer need to pay admin' fees to reserve a property. Instead, a proportion of your first month rent or deposit is required to reserve the property and start the referencing process. This will come off the rent/damage deposit balance due on the day the tenancy commences. Please see our 'disclaimer' page for further details, such as referencing.
However some fees still apply:
In an existing fixed term, joint tenancy, to change an existing tenant to another (subject to referencing) should the tenant request it, there is a fee of £50.00 inc.VAT (per tenant swapped) if given the landlord's instructions to.
Variation of tenancy, should the tenant request it: There is a fee of £50.00 inc. VAT, if given the landlords instructions to do so.
EARLY TERMINATION OF TENANCY: The tenant is liable to cover the landlord's costs for reletting the property & any rent due until the new tenancy commences. (Processes such as viewings, referencing, negotiation, legal paperwork and more may be required).
Tenants are liable to the actual cost of replacing any lost key(s) or other security device(s). If the loss results in locks needing to be changed, the actual costs of a locksmith, new lock and replacement keys for the tenant, landlord any other persons requiring keys will be charged to the tenant. If extra costs are incurred there will be a charge of £15 per hour (inc. VAT) for the time taken replacing lost key(s) or other security device(s).
