Tenant Fees


For prospective tenants on:

For people who are on a low income (less than £750 per month) or in receipt of benefits a fee of £25 will be applied. 

For working people a fee of £45 will be applied.  

All prospective tenants will be asked for proof that they are in receipt of benefit, and/or asked to supply their last 3 months bank statements or wage slips.

Charges applied go towards paying for the administration costs relating to; a reference request, a credit check, and the check in and check out of the property you are going into.

If you fail the reference or we or the landlord declines you, the fee will be returned. If however, you fail to keep in touch or decide for yourself that you do not wish to go ahead the fee will not be returned. Therefore it is important that you are sure you wish to go ahead following the viewing of the property.
