COUNCIL TAX - Band A
REQUIREMENTS - Suitable references and the outcome of a satisfactory credit check. 5 weeks rent as security deposit and 1 months rent payable in advance. Tenants will be required to pay all Utility bills such as Council Tax, electricity, gas, water and drainage. Sorry no pets or smokers. Working tenants only. For referencing purposes a verifiable income of 20,500 pa or better will be required under our referencing agencies affordability criteria. Before referencing begins a refundable holding fee of £155.00 (1 weeks rent) is required
TENANT INFORMATION - The tenant fee ban was introduced from the 1st June 2019 and affects any tenancy that started from this date. Landlords and letting agents are now unable to charge any fees whatsoever in the set up of a tenancy. Therefore tenants are not required to pay fees for referencing, preparation of tenancy agreements or inventories etc nor any costs directly in relation to the tenancy itself. Landlords and agents are however within their rights to charge a refundable holding deposit should a tenant wish to pursue the rental of a property. In view of this we will take a holding deposit equivalent to no more than 1 weeks rent, and should the tenancy proceed this will be deducted from the 1st months rent or security deposit. If the tenancy does not proceed this holding fee is refundable.The tenant fee ban also makes clear details of the level of the security deposit. under the ban the maximum security deposit that can be taken for a property can be no more than 5 weeks rent. In view of this the security deposit for this property will be 5 weeks rent and will be lodged within the DPS Custodial Deposit Scheme once the tenancy starts

As of 1st June 2019 Landlords and Lettings agents are no longer allowed by law to charge any fees whatsoever to tenants for the administration or set up of a tenancy. Therefore historic charges such as referencing and administration fees, contributions towards the cost of preparing a tenancy agreement, contribution towards the cost of preparing the inventories etc are now all banned under the new legislation such fees have previously been levied against the tenant.
In compliance with this legislation we will no longer be charging tenants referencing or administration fees, the cost of these will now be borne by the landlord. We are however allowed to charge a reservation fee of no more than 1 week’s rent. On this basis we will reserve the right to take a refundable holding fee of no more than 1 week’s rent from a prospective tenant who wishes to rent a property if the tenancy application is successful this reservation fee can be deducted from the 1st month’s rent or deposit.
If a tenancy application fails as a result of a tenant providing inaccurate information to either ourselves or the referencing agency, then under the new Tenant Fee Ban we are allowed to keep such a reservation fee to cover abortive administrative costs. We therefore recommend any prospective tenants’ discusses their application for a property in detail in order we can ascertain whether there maybe issues that could impede on application for a property.
Under no circumstances we will any longer accept cash payments, in part because of the increasing costs being levied upon us by our bank to pay cash into the client account. We recommend prospective tenants make all payments to us via BACS transfer directly into our Natwest bank account No: 26966441 Sort Code: 50-00-00. Should a tenant be adamant that they wish to pay a deposit or holding fee by cash we will charge £1 administration fee for every £100 or part thereof to cover our bank charges
