Before you Move In
Costs of renting – There are no application charges to find a rental property. To secure a property you will be asked to pay a Holding Deposit which will be an amount equal to, or slightly less than 1 weeks rent. A Holding Deposit contract will provide all the relevant information about the Holding Deposit; in most cases this will be allocated to your first month’s rent.
Rent is usually paid on a monthly basis and is paid in advance. You will need to pay your first month’s rent and the tenancy deposit before you move into the property. Funds must be cleared before keys can be released for a property.
During Your Tenancy
In addition to your rent (unless your tenancy agreement stipulates otherwise) you are responsible for normal household outgoings. Such outgoings include the costs of; Gas, Electric, Water, Council Tax, TV licence, Contents Insurance, Phone Line & Internet.
