DEPOSIT: A minimum of one and a half month’s rental is required, payable by Bankers Draft and the deposit will be registered into an independent Government Protection Scheme.  Provided that there are no disputes over unfair wear and tear, damage or dirt or rent outstanding, the deposit will be returned at the expiry of the tenancy.  Under no circumstances can this be used as part or all of the last month’s rent.

TENANCY AGREEMENT: A tenancy agreement will be drawn up for a minimum period of six months.  Keys to the property will be handed over at the Inventory Check In, subject to the agreement being signed, first month’s rent and deposit being obtained.  Please note all tenants named on the Tenancy Agreement must sign the necessary documentation before commencement of the Tenancy and keys will not be released until this is the case.

EXTENSION/RENEWAL: Should the tenants wish to extend the term of the original agreement, or subsequent agreements there will be a charge of £225.00 inc VAT to cover their share of the cost of preparing documentation, for each and every extension or renewal.

CHECKOUT ADMINISTRATION: At the commencement of the tenancy you will be given a copy of the inventory, you are advised to thoroughly check it. On expiry of the tenancy the inventory will be checked out. The cost of the inventory make and check in will be borne by the landlord and a charge will be payable by the tenants to cover the cost of the inventory check out. If the property has been professionally cleaned with oven and carpets professionally cleaned at the commencement of the tenancy the tenant will be responsible for the same professional cleaning at the termination of the tenancy.  If the professional clean is not organised by the outgoing tenant this will be carried out once the tenant has vacated and the cost will be deducted from the deposit held.
