HOLDING SECURITY
In order to take the property off the market until the planned tenancy commencement date, a holding security is required. The security fee secures the Landlord against all reasonable costs incurred should you withdraw from the agreement or fail to take up the tenancy within the agreed timescales. This is payable at the same time as the Agency Fee which are none refundable.

ADMINISTRATION / AGENCY FEES
At the point you submit your application, a fee is payable to cover the administration / referencing cost, including the preparation of the tenancy documentation and cost of credit references. The fee is non refundable if you fail or withdraw the application.
RESTRICTIONS
Some landlords may wish to apply certain restrictions to a tenancy. Please find below some examples of typical restrictions that may be imposed:
• Smokers
• Housing Benefit
• Students
• Pets
• Couples
You should be advised of any restrictions before an agreed viewing of a property takes place or please notify us if you have any of these or other requirement.

STUDENT APPLICANTS
If you are a student who cannot prove a consistent and sufficient income, you will need a parent, relative or close friend to guarantee the rent and adherence to any other tenant obligation listed within the agreement.

SELF EMPLOYED APPLICANTS
If you are self-employed, we may require a written reference from your bank and accountant. We will also require accounts, usually dating back 12 months.
How do I terminate my tenancy and will I have my deposit returned?
Providing you comply with the terms of the lease and ensure that the property is left in a clean condition, then your deposit will be refunded. However, should any damage occur which is not down to wear and tear, e.g. carpets dirty and stained, cookers, fridges left in a poor state, then monies will be deducted to rectify these problems. Any shortfall will be billed for payment. Remember the deposit cannot be set against any unpaid rent. Please note any property not managed by us will be subject to the contract between the landlord & tenants

What happens if there is a dispute at the end of the tenancy?
In the event of a dispute, both parties will have 10 days to resolve the matter. If no resolution has been reached, they will be invited to make use of the Alternative Dispute Resolution process that is provided free with their chosen deposit scheme. Should the parties opt for Alternative Dispute Resolution they will be bound by its decision with no redress to the courts.
Tenant’s Legal Obligation
Where there are several tenants sharing a house, there is a legal obligation for all parties to sign the agreement. Remember you are all jointly responsible for payment of rent and utilities and complying fully with the terms of release for the whole period of the tenancy.

Do not want to complete the tenancy.

Any payment, admin fees, security deposit, holding fees that are paid are none refundable if the aplicant tenant no longer wants to proceed with the property or room.
