Should you wish to proceed on a property and all the terms and conditions have been agreed the following fees and charges will apply:
Holding Fee Tenancy Application –The tenancy holding deposit is the equivalent of 1 weeks rent which indicates your intentions to proceed with renting the property. Once you have paid your holding fee, we will hold the property for satisfactory references to be sought for an initial period of 15 days from the date of receipt. We are able to extend the period of 15 days agreement deadline by mutual consent in writing should this be required, ie difficulties in obtaining references within the specified time by third parties. Should either you or your guarantors (if applicable) application be unsuccessful because you or any proposed joint tenant(s) change your or their mind(s) and withdraw, fail the rights to rent checks, take the tenancy within a reasonable timescale or fail the referencing process due to the omitting of critical information i.e. adverse credit or misleading information then no monies will be refunded to you.
Security Deposit – Before your tenancy commences you will be required to make a security deposit equivalent to one months rent (This may vary dependent on landlords specific instructions or tenants personal circumstances but will be no more than 5 weeks rent). If the property is managed by Stanford Estate Agents then the deposit will be lodged with the (DPS) If the landlord manages the property they will be responsible for the lodging of any deposit with an appropriate and government accredited custodial scheme.
