  2. All tenants PAY ZERO ADMIN FEES to secure a property.

    Once an agreement has been made to take a property, we will take the equivalent of one weeks rent. This will be a holding deposit whilst checks are being carried out. This will then be used as part of the deposit so no fees will be paid by the tenant.

    All credit and referencing checks must be completed within a 15 day period and the contract must be agreed and signed within this 15 day period to confirm a property.

    The one weeks holding fee may be retained by the agent if:

      1. the tenant decides not to proceed
      2. the tenant fails the right to rent checks
      3. the tenant provides false or misleading information
      4. where the landlord tries their best to get the information required and the tenant fails to provide it within the 15 days.


Each tenancy is subject to a damage deposit capped at 5 weeks rent for all rents up to £50,000 per annum, anything over this amount we can charge a six week deposit. You may also use a deposit replacement scheme but only if this is permitted by the owner of the property.

  • You can still rent one of our properties if you are a student. All we require is a guarantor and a letter from your college or university confirming your place of study.

  • The minimum lease available is 6 months and the maximum is 12 months. After this time you can give us 2 month's written notice from the rent payment date to vacate the property. The landlord cannot ask you to leave within this period, however once the minimum lease term has finished, he can give you written notice to leave.

  • Once the property is vacant, it can take 3 to 6 days to check the relevant references. Once these have been completed and all the first months monies received and cleared you will be able to move in. We will hold the property for 7 days as soon as we receive the administration fee and we will hold the property for 4 weeks, with one month's rent as a holding deposit.
