Tenant Referencing & holding deposits
Before offering you a tenancy we will apply for references, complete credit checks & right to rent checks. At this time you will pay a holding deposit equivalent to 1 weeks rent.
Please note: if your references/credit checks are not acceptable or you withdraw your application your initial holding deposit is non-refundable.
When signing for your tenancy you will pay 1 months’ rent in advance and a deposit equivalent to 5 weeks rent.
