TENANT CHARGES – JUNE 2019
When renting a property, you should expect to pay the following in cleared funds, 5 days prior to the commencement of your tenancy:
In order to proceed with an agreed tenancy (subject to contract and references) Paige and Petrook requests a holding payment per tenancy to stop marketing the property. This payment will form part of the 5 week Security Deposit.
Holding Deposit – Equivalent of 1 weeks rent (Monthly rent x 12 months ÷ 52 weeks = TOTAL)
The applicant accepts that should they decide not to continue with this rental once the offer has been accepted, this advance payment will be retained as compensation. If the applicant has provided false information to the agent which results in them failing the reference checks this advance payment will be retained as compensation. Should the Landlord withdraw their agreement to proceed with this Tenancy prior to its scheduled commencement Paige and Petrook will reimburse the tenant the advance payment paid in full.
Security Deposit – equivalent of 5 weeks rent (Monthly rent x 12 months ÷ 52 weeks x 5 = TOTAL)
Should the annual rent exceed £50,000.00 the security deposit will increase to six weeks rent.
