Other Charges you should allow for

 Payment of Intent – To be agreed with you (but usually equivalent to one week’s rent)

We may require a payment of intent as confirmation of your intent to proceed with the proposed tenancy. This will be put forward towards your first rental payment and will only be refunded if our client elects not to proceed. Payment of this sum does not constitute the granting of tenancy.

Rent in Advance – 1 Month

Under the terms of the tenancy agreement you will usually be required to pay 1 month’s rent in advance prior to the commencement of the tenancy

Deposit – Equivalent to 6 weeks rent

The deposit is held to protect your landlord from you not meeting your obligations under the terms of the tenancy. Whilst you should check the tenancy agreement for details specific to your tenancy, it is likely to be held by us as stakeholder and registered with a Deposit Scheme (MyDeposits or DPS). This means that no deductions can be made until you and the landlord have reached an agreement or there is a judgement by the courts or the deposit protection scheme.

Stamp Duty Land Tax

This tax is payable on tenancies where the rent exceeds £125,000. Please contact HMRC for further information

Professional Cleaning (if required) – Typical Cost £304.00 (Inc. VAT)

Only charged where professional cleaning is necessary to return the property to the same condition as at the start of the tenancy. The actual cost of the cleaning is dependent on the size of the property. We will give you the price applicable to the property in good time.
