Our fee of £132 inclusive of VAT will be payable prior to the start of your tenancy agreement. This is a fixed cost fee that covers a variety of works including but not limited to conducting viewings, negotiating the tenancy, verifying references and drawing up contracts. This charge is applicable per tenant.
The first instalment of rent must be paid in cleared funds when you sign the tenancy agreement. Thereafter, rent is payable by standing order (unless agreed otherwise) to arrive on the due date as stated in the tenancy agreement. This means that the standing order must be set up so that the funds leave your account three days before the rent is due.
Before the tenancy can proceed you need to provide us with a photo ID in the form of a passport or EU driving licence.
