Non-refundable admin fee
Paid when reserving a property ahead of a new tenancy, this covers all reference checks and contract fees. This amount is fixed regardless of the number of tenants or the property size. (Scroll down for refund policy.)
Pays an independent inventory clerk to do a check-out inspection and report. This ensures impartiality and protects you from unfair deposit deductions. You pay the clerk at the tenancy’s end; your landlord pays at the start.
No renewal fees
There are no fees when an existing tenancy agreement is extended or renewed and the same tenants stay on.
We ask for a refundable holding deposit to reserve the property. (Scroll down for refund policy.)
One working day before check-in, you pay your full deposit and first month’s rent. As required by law, we submit your deposit to the Deposit Protection Service.

Frequently asked questions
If the tenancy agreement has been signed by both parties, but the tenant decides not to proceed with the tenancy within 14 days or less of the tenancy start date, the landlord is entitled to claim any resulting loss of rent from the holding deposit.
If the landlord decides not to proceed with the tenancy for any reason other than a reference check failure, then the holding deposit and admin fee will be refunded to the tenant in full.
