Tenant Fees & Charges
Mandatory charges associated with the setting up of your tenancy (Where not payable you will be advised accordingly)
Preliminary Charge - £150 Inc. VAT
This charge covers the cost of preliminary paperwork, including preparation of the tenancy agreement. It is payable in full prior to negotiations commencing with our client and is charged on a per property basis – not per person. In the event that negotiations are unsuccessful and your offer is not accepted by our client it will be refunded in full.
Referencing Charge - £150 Inc. VAT per person
This charge is payable by each person or company named on the final tenancy agreement to cover the cost of referencing. Referencing is carried out by an independent referencing agency. The charge will not be refunded if negotiations are unsuccessful and references have been undertaken.
Other funds you should allow for
Payment of Intent – To be agreed with you
We may require a payment of intent as confirmation of your intent to proceed with the proposed tenancy. This will be put towards your first rental payment and will only be refunded if our client elects not to proceed. Payment of this sum does not constitute the granting of a tenancy.
Rent in Advance – 1 Month
Under the terms of most tenancy agreements you will usually be required to pay 1 months’ rent in advance prior to commencement of the tenancy.
Deposit – Typically equivalent to 1 Months’ rent + £200 Inc. VAT, but dependant on individual tenant’s circumstances
The deposit is held to protect your landlord from you not meeting your obligations under the terms of the tenancy. Whilst you should check the tenancy agreement for details specific to your tenancy, it will likely be held by us as stakeholder and protected under Tenancy Deposit Protection (TDP). This means that no deductions can be made until you and the landlord have reached an agreement or there is a judgement by the courts or a TDP scheme.
Stamp Duty Land Tax
This tax is payable on tenancies where the rent exceeds £125,000. Please contact HMRC for further information
Charges if you terminate your tenancy
Early Termination Charge - £540 Inc. VAT
Should you wish to move out of the property before the end of the fixed term, a written request for the property to be re-marketed and suitable replacement tenants found, should be forwarded to the Agent for the consideration of the Landlord. If the Landlord is in agreement, a fee of £450.00 plus VAT (£540 Inc. VAT) must be paid to the Agent before remarketing can commence. The Tenant will remain fully responsible for the property, rent and services and all obligations contained within the tenancy agreement until the end of the tenancy OR until such time as a new tenancy is executed.
Charges if you renew your tenancy
Memorandum of Renewal - £114 Inc. VAT
This charge covers the cost of preparing a document that confirms the details of renewal (if any) where the basic terms, other than any rental increase, remain largely unchanged.
Renewal Tenancy Agreement - £150 Inc. VAT
This charge covers the cost of preparing a more extensive renewal document where substantial changes to the terms of any renewal are required.
Charges at the end of your tenancy
Inventory Check-Out – Cost dependant on property size but minimum cost £70 Inc. VAT – please ask for the price specific to the property you are interested in
The Inventory Clerk, reserves the right to reasonably adjust the charge at the time of the check-out if their charges have so increased.
