Residential Lettings Tenant Fees

Once an offer has been made for the property and accepted by the Landlord, Best Gapp will request a holding fee of two weeks rent to reserve and secure the property, so that references can be processed.  NB. If the Landlord decides not to proceed with the tenancy, the holding fee will be reimbursed to the applicant in full.  Should the prospective tenant withdraw their offer before the tenant references are processed and completed, the holding fee will be reimbursed in full.  However, if the prospective tenant decides not to proceed after references have been processed and completed, the holding fee will be reimbursed, less the tenant administration fee of £120 (inclusive of VAT) per applicant to cover administration costs. This cost will include our external credit check and reference agency fee of £37.50 per person (inclusive of VAT).

 

Deposit Equivalent to six weeks rent (unless otherwise agreed). NB. All deposits to be protected in the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (either DPS or TDS).
