TENANT FEES SCHEDULE
Holding deposit (per tenancy) - one week's rent.
This is to reserve a property. Please note: The whole sum or part of the sum of the Holding Deposit can be retained in any of the following circumstances:
- False or misleading information is provided by any of the Prospective Tenant(s) which affects the Landlord's decision (acting reasonably) in letting the Property to the Prospective Tenant(s); or
- The Prospective Tenant(s) fail(s) to take all reasonable steps to enter into the Tenancy Agreement (where the Landlord and/or Agent have taken all reasonable steps to enter into a contract before the Deadline for Agreement); or
- The Prospective Tenant(s) [notify/notifies] the Letting Agent that they do not wish to enter into the Tenancy Agreement prior to the Deadline for Agreement.
Deposit - one months rent
During the tenancy, the tenant is responsible for paying charges for electricity, gas, council tax, water rates, television licence and telephone (including connection charge, rental and any deposit required). Personal contents insurance is also the tenant's responsibility.
In addition, the following costs may be incurred during the period of the Tenancy:
- Avoidable or purposeful damage to a property.
Tenants are liable to the actual cost of remedying any damage incurred (as detailed in a contractors invoice)
- Lost Key(s) or other Security Device(s).
Tenants are liable to the actual cost of replacing any lost key(s) or other security device(s). If the loss results in locks needing to be changed, the actual costs of a locksmith, new lock and replacement keys for the tenant, landlord and any other persons requiring keys will be charged to the tenant.
- Pay any excess on the Landlord's insurance if the claim results from the negligence, misuse or failure to act reasonably by the Tenant or any of his visitors or friends.
- Pay and arrange for the removal of all vermin, pests and insects, if infestation begins during the term, woodworm and wood-boring insects excepted, unless such infestation occurs as a failure of the Landlord to fulfil his repairing obligations.
- Where the Tenant requests a repair and on inspection the problem has been caused by a failure on the part of the Tenant (for example drains blocked by the Tenant's waste or boiler repair claims caused by not having any credit on a utility meter), the Tenant agrees to be responsible for the costs of the contractor's visit.
