TENURE The property is to be let unfurnished on a six month Assured Shorthold Tenancy (minimum). Possession will not be granted until the Agreement has been signed, references have been taken up and the in-going funds have been paid (cleared funds). Please Note: Pets by arrangement.

The Tenant will be responsible for the Council Tax ~ Band C

Rent ~ £850 per calendar month, payable in advance by Banker's standing order.

In-Going Costs ~ A deposit in the sum of five weeks rent to be paid, which will be held by the Agent as stakeholder and returned to the Tenant at the end of the tenancy, providing the terms of the Agreement have been adhered to. One whole month's rent is to be paid in advance before taking occupation.


APPLICATION DETAILS We will require your photographic identification (i.e driving license and/or passport) and a copy of a recent Utility Bill from your current address. We will check your credit rating as well as seek references from your employer and current/previous landlords. You will be referenced by 'Rentshield' who will contact you directly and ask you to submit information to them online by following a related link, which they will email to you.

You may be required to pay a 'Holding Deposit' of £100 to secure the property during the application process. We are only able to accept one Holding Deposit at any one time, therefore no other interested parties will be able to view once a Deposit has been paid. Once we are in receipt of your Holding Deposit, the 'deadline for agreement' for both parties is 15 working days (unless otherwise agreed in writing). If your application is successful, your Holding Deposit will be transferred over as part payment of your first month's rent.

However, if the Landlord decides not to rent the property or an agreement is not reached before the 15 day 'deadline for agreement' (and the tenant is not at fault), then we are required under the Tenant Fee Act 2019 to return your full Holding Deposit to you in full within 7 days.

Repayment of the Holding Deposit does not have to be returned in full if:
- You (the applicant) backs out before the tenancy agreement is granted;
- You fail the referencing checks and it was not reasonable for the landlord or agent to know you would fail;
- You fail a 'Right to Rent' check;
- You have provided false or misleading information which would impact on the decision to let the property to you;
- or where the landlord tries their best to get any information needed to proceed but you fail to provide it within the 15 days.
The amount of any partial repayment of the Holding Deposit is at the Agent's discretion.

VIEWING Strictly by appointment through the agent. Out of Hours Please Call 01769 580024
