Procedure

    Our leases for all of our properties are for a 12 month term from 1st August to 31st July. The month of August is charged at ½ price since it is a retainer to hold the property until move-in date of 1st September.

    The rent is inclusive of broadband provided by Virgin Media and in most properties a Virgin Media TV package is also included, although the rent does not include bills when renting a flat, they are all inclusive with the houses. This would include Gas, Electricity & Water.But it does not include the TV license which will have to be purchased by the tenants. Only one TV Licence per property is required.

    A holding fee equal to one months rent (one and a half times the months rent for foreign nationals) plus £100 for the administration fee will have to be paid at the time of submitting your application form & signing the lease. This holding fee is not refundable if you do not take up residency for any reason. This holding fee will become your security deposit which will be lodged with an authorised tenancy deposit scheme once the lease starts. This security deposit will be returned at the end of the lease less any deductions for breakages and cleaning if necessary.

    We will also require each tenant to provide a working parent living in the UK to act as a guarantor. The rent is paid monthly in advance by standing order monthly or termly in September, January and April.

    All foreign nationals will be required to pay the rent in three instalments. The first on 1st August equal to 4.5 months rent, the second on 1st January also for 4 months and last for 3 months on 1st April. They will also be obliged to put a higher deposit equal to 1.5 times the monthly rent.

    All applicants will have to pay an administration, management and referencing fee of £100.00. This is payable when signing the lease and is not refundable.
