Deposit

Five week’s rent as deposit. Except in cases where the annual rent is £50,000 or more, in which case the amount of deposit collected will be equivalent to six weeks rent.
 
Holding Deposit

To reserve a property for a tenancy the costs are equivalent to one week’s rent per property, which is deductible from first rent payment or the deposit due. Should the applicant withdraw after a period of seven days the Landlord will be entitled to receive the holding deposit. Otherwise the holding deposit will be returned, once reasonable costs have been demonstrated and evidenced, e.g cost of references. Should the applicant not give written consent to extend the 14 days ‘deadline for agreement’ the whole amount of holding deposit will be returned. Should the tenant give written consent to extend the ‘deadline for agreement’ and subsequently withdraw the Landlord will be entitled to retain the whole amount of the holding deposit.
 
We will always provide written notification and reasons for retaining the holding deposit in case of this eventuality.
