Tenant Letting Fees Information

Permitted payments

Once an Application has been submitted and agreed by the Landlord we will ask that a ‘Holding Deposit’ of 1 weeks rent is paid to (Newton Fallowell) which will be deducted off the first month’s rent at Check In. Once this money is received, we will conduct the relevant credit and background checks. We refrain from conducting any further viewings whilst these checks are being conducted.

Once the background checks have come back, we will arrange a Check In date with you and email a Subject to contract Letter and Draft Tenancy Agreement for your reading. The Deposit is equivalent to 5 Weeks Rent, unless a lessor amount has been agreed with the Landlord prior.  

Prior to Check In, we MUST have cleared funds in our account before we hand over the keys or ask you to sign the paperwork. Our preferred method is by Bank Transfer, if paying by Cheque this must be handed over to us at least 7 days prior to the Tenancy commencing.

On the day of Check In, you will sign a Standing Order, which will be sent to your bank enabling rental payments to automatically come out of your bank every month.

Further Fees:

- Changes to the tenancy agreement during the Tenancy: £50.00 inc VAT
- Payment of interest for the late payment of rent at a rate of 3% above the Bank of England Base Rate.
