Tenants

Lettings Information For Tenants

Should Anthony Sharp be successful in finding suitable accommodation for you, please read the following notes, which outline the next steps:

Holding Deposits

If you would like to make an offer to rent a property, we will contact the landlord and put forward the offer.  If the offer is accepted, you will be required to provide a Holding Deposit.  The holding deposit will subsequently be offset from the initial rent required prior to commencement of the tenancy.

This Holding Deposit is non-refundable and will be forfeited and lost in the event you later decide to withdraw your offer to rent the property or not proceed in any way.  The holding deposit will be returned to you in the event that the landlord declines your application to rent the property.  Should the references be returned as unacceptable and provided the information given was correct, the holding deposit will be returned in full.

The Holding Deposit will not constitute a contract of agreement to rent the property.

Fees

BEFORE YOU MOVE IN:


Set up fee (tenant’s share) £420 (inc VAT) per tenancy per property
Referencing per tenancy per property (identity, immigration and visa confirmation, financial credit checks, obtaining references from current or previous employers / landlords and any other relevant information to assess affordability) as well as contract negotiation (amending and agreeing terms) and arranging the tenancy and agreement

DURING YOUR TENANCY:

Amendment Fee £150 (inc VAT)

Contract negotiation, amending terms and updating your tenancy agreement during your tenancy

ENDING YOUR TENANCY:

Inventory Clerk attending the property to undertake an updated Schedule of Condition based on the original inventory.

Professional Cleaning (if required) £150 - £500 (inc VAT) depending on number of bedrooms, which need to be paid directly by the tenant. Only charged where professional cleaning is necessary to return the property to the same condition as at the start of the tenancy.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON OUR FEES, PLEASE ASK A MEMBER OF STAFF

Tenancy Agreement


The Tenancy Agreement which sets out the terms and conditions of the letting and the obligations of both the landlord and you (the tenant), will be prepared by Anthony Sharp.  In certain cases, the landlord prefers his own solicitors to draw up the Agreement.

Identification

A proof of identification (either a valid passport or driving license) has to be provided shortly after the offer is accepted by the landlord.

References

We will obtain a credit reference report through an independent credit referencing company.

Tenancy Deposits

A refundable deposit of six weeks rent is payable before the commencement of the tenancy.

Rent collection

Example of how rent is calculated, if paid monthly:

Monthly:  i.e. £250.00 x 52 = £1,083.33 per calendar month

Rent is payable by standing order to your landlord.

Inventories

An inventory check will be carried out at the beginning and end of the tenancy and is usually performed by a professional independent inventory clerk.  The check-in cost is borne by the landlord and the check-out by you.

The charge is usually in the region of £120 - £500 depending on number of bedrooms and property size.

Utilities

The utility bills for gas, electricity and telephone, and in some cases water rates, are payable by you.  Deposits will be required by some suppliers if you have not previously held accounts.

Insurance

You should insure your own personal effects as the Landlord does not have an obligation to do so.  The Landlord will insure his furniture, fixtures and fittings within the property.
