What’s not included?

Our fees exclude charges for work done by third-party firms (all fees listed here include Vat). Swift accepts no referral fees from these contractors:

  • Tradesmen repairs Labour and parts billed by, for example, a plumber, electrician or handyman.
  • Inventory creation To ensure impartiality, we use an independent specialist to compile a full report with photos of your property’s condition and contents. This is a one-off cost (£100 for a two-bedroom, one-bathroom furnished flat) at the start of your first tenancy, as the inventory is re-used for future lettings.
  • Tenant check-in and check-out The same inventory specialist walks tenants through the property’s report and gets them to sign agreement there and then (£80 for a two-bedroom, one-bathroom furnished flat).
  • Professional cleaning Only needed once as tenants have to return the property cleaned to this standard (about £175 for a two-bedroom flat excluding carpets; £240 with carpets included).
